(CNN) — A California homeowner exercised his right to bear arms — and take pictures — after a group of people tried to break into his home.
Yan Zhang of Chino Hills was at home with his wife and children when five people tried to enter the house through a balcony in the back. Zhang grabbed his gun, told his wife to hide the kids and then went to work.
“They were home and then several (suspects) kind of tried to pry the door open, tried to get in,” neighbor Tony Tran told CNN affiliate KTLA. “(Zhang) got a gun so he fired a warning shot and was able to apprehend them until the police showed up.”
