This is the incredible moment a wealthy Los Angeles father pulled a gun on two masked intruders who attempted to break into his house.
The father, who remained anonymous was approached by one of the masked robbers from behind as he walked up to his Mid-City home around 7.30pm on Saturday.
The homeowner then reached for his gun and started a shootout with the intruders outside of his home in the democratic run city.
‘There was nothing in my house that was worth dying for. But I was willing to die for my family,’ the man told KABC.
The crime rate in Los Angeles has soared in the Democratic run state following the defund police movement. The lax law enforcement has sparked an exodus of residents to Republican states such as Texas and Florida.
After the two masked intruders jumped over the homeowner’s fence, one of them quickly ran up to the man and pointed his pistol at his back (pictured)
He said that his five-month-old baby, wife and nanny were all in the house at the time of the incident.
Home surveillance footage shows the moment the man locks his car in his driveway and starts to look for his keys, with a beverage in his other hand.
That’s when the two intruders jump over the moving fence that surrounds the home and one of them runs up behind the homeowner.
The father, a white, middle-aged male quickly turns around, throws his hot tea at the suspect just before he pulls out his gun from his pants and starts shooting at both intruders.
As shots rain down, the two masked assailants scatter as one fires back at the homeowner.
The father then follows one suspect who hops over the side fence, while the other hops over the front gate and flees the scene.
The father and husband said that ‘out of nowhere’ he felt someone behind him put a pistol to his back.
Following the attack, he and his family filed a police report with LAPD’s Olympic Division.
DailyMail.com contacted the LAPD for an update on the investigation.

‘It’s a matter of time before these people get caught. I think they should just pick a new career before they do end up in jail,’ the father told KABC.
The homeowner was not sure if he struck either of the intruders, but he told Fox11 that if anyone else tried to harm him and his family again, ‘they’re going to die for trying to come in this house.’
