Here’s another entry for the AR-15 Defensive Gun Use page.
Six armed men broke into a Jacksonville, Florida mobile home on Sunday, April 15th. One man yelled out, “Sheriff’s Office!” before the door burst in and at least one masked gunman entered the home and fired a shot. Of the four residents, two reportedly armed themselves with a 9mm handgun and an AR-15, returning fire. The attackers soon fled, with several of the wounded being captured by police in a vehicle speeding away from the scene.

One of the brothers, 24, was wounded and treated at the hospital, but released into police custody. Charges for the 16-year-old may be pending his release from the hospital.
