Watch: Armed Veteran Homeowner Gets Into Wild Shootout with Burglars on His Front Lawn

Burglars realized they chose the wrong home when they were confronted by an armed homeowner who just happened to be a US veteran.

Clayton County, Georgia – A man told Fox 5 Atlanta that he wanted to protect his wife and home after he saw three burglars on his front lawn on his Ring camera.

Whitfield Smith said he saw one of the burglars trying to break into his BMW parked in his driveway so he grabbed his rifle and ran outside in his pajamas and flip-flops.

“My first thought was to protect my house and protect my property. I just wanted to get the intruders away,” Whitfield Smith said.

“As I keep looking at the Ring camera I noticed a young man running from the neighbor’s yard across my yard and into the street to meet up with two other gentlemen,” Smith said.

“He sprints up my driveway. I can see from the camera he’s hunched down wearing a grey hoodie, and he has a firearm in his hand. He tries to get into the BMW in the driveway. The door’s locked,” Smith added.

“I grab my rifle and I head outside,” Smith said.

Smith is seen on the surveillance video exchanging gunfire with the burglars.

Smith used his BMW as a shield as the burglars fired at him.

“I don’t want to die at home. I survived Afghanistan and everywhere else. To die at home? In my own yard,” Smith told Fox 5 Atlanta.

The three suspects are still at large and Clayton County police are urging anyone with information to call authorities.

    Whitfield Smith, I hope you have plenty more ammo. Biden’s pro chaos administration is still influenced by Obama that instigates violence to convince the public that the Second Amendment must be abolished. Obiden can’t implement socialism as the new world order as long as there’s still citizens with guns who think they have a right to be free and protect their own families. This violence will continue as long as Biden’s strings are being pulled by Obama’s third and fourth terms in the White House. Lock and load everybody! Since Obiden’s administration won’t control this chaos, the citizens will have to.

    Excellent. More and more Americans are arming themselves to protect themselves, family and homes. The low-lifes had better take notice. The next victim they pick may well be their last! Sure we have police. Eventually they will show up. They can pick up the “trash” in body bags.
