A gun fight broke out in a San Antonio home when burglary suspects reportedly tried to rob the house at gunpoint and a resident responded with gunfire.
Two men broke into the San Antonio home Wednesday at around 11 p.m. while four residents were also in the house, police told SBG San Antonio. One of the residents defended the home by firing a gun, which sparked a gun fight.

The incident comes after other Americans have defended themselves with a gun during crimes against them, including in Florida last year when a homeowner shot and killed two intruders and injured another during an armed home invasion.
“The victim in this case was exercising his Second Amendment right to protect himself in his home,” Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said at the time.
