    WATCH: Kentucky Man Opens Fire on Four Home Invasion Suspects

    A Warren County Kentucky man opened fire on four home invasion suspects, at least one of whom was armed.
    WAFB 9 reports that the lead suspect exchanged gunfire with the homeowner, 24-year-old Austin Orwig, and Orwig was struck in his hand by a bullet.

    WDBJ 7 reports that “security video [shows] that someone kicked the door in, and four intruders entered the home.”

    According to WNKY, Warren County Sheriff Brett Hightower indicated there was no evidence that the suspects were struck by gunfire. They turned and ran as soon as Orwig began shooting.

    Sheriff's office investigating home invasion, shooting - WNKY

    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Just before midnight Wednesday, three people armed with handguns kicked in a door in Country Living Estates mobile home community as a fourth person stood near the door. That’s when the occupant of Lot 149 opened fire on the intruders.

    “There was an exchange of gunfire,” Warren County Sheriff Brett Hightower said.

    The intruders quickly retreated as the occupant, Austin Orwig, 24, continued firing at them.

    The entire incident was captured on surveillance video that the sheriff’s office posted to Facebook with the hope that others will recognize the people who kicked in the door to the home.

    In the video, muzzle flash from occupant’s gun can be seen, screams can be heard coming from another room inside the home.

    Orwig sustained a gunshot wound to the hand, was taken to a local hospital and transferred to a Louisville hospital. He has since been released.

    “There is no evidence to tell that any suspect was shot,” Hightower said.

    He should have been hiding to the right of the doorway so that he could have stacked them up like cordwood.

    I'm impressed that the guy was able to fire within six seconds of the door being kicked in. He may not have hit anyone but he got the job done.

    I looked up "Asses and Elbows" in the dictionary,
    and it had a screen grab from the 10 second mark.

    Good thing Massachusetts limits magazines to 10 rounds. That'll take care of 4 armed intruders!

    Same event, in a Massachusetts household:

    Door kicked in...

    Homeowner: "Shit! Where is the key to my safe!"

    Bad guys: "Hey! The dead guy has a gun safe!!!"...

    Moral to the story: "Pre-ban hi-caps don't mean a thing, if you can't fill your hand... fast."

    Question for NES:

    Massachusetts Residents Only;
    What is the likelihood of a violent home invasion vs. the likelihood of being caught with an unsecured firearm for defensive purposes...?

    Chelmsford Home Invasion

    *Obviously, if you have young, untrained children, your options shrink.

    I'm glad I live in a big house; if someone kicks the door in the alarm will go off giving me plenty of time before they make it up three flights of stairs and figure out where the bedroom is. This guy had about six seconds from the time the door came down until the guy w/ the gun was in his doorway, good for him. I'd still be wiping the drool off my cheek.

    Me too! (CPAP)

    I'm trying to convince the wife that we need a dog. A good guard dog is a secondary alarm who should buy you some time to get into the safe.

    Hit the door frame from the look of it.
    That didn't go like they had imagined.

    Most household front doors and their frames won't stand up to three kicks. I have experience with a size 13 door opener.

    This is why the castle doctrine exists and why if you follow Massachusetts' foolish storage laws you'll very likely be killed in an invasion like this.

    I'm wondering if the home owner accidently shot himself in the hand in the excitement?

    I made sure my front door is of a strength that any human
    on the planet can kick it until they’re blue in the face. All
    they’re going to get is a sore foot. That door is going no where.
    First thing I did to it was make it open out so you’ll be
    kicking into the reenforced-jam not into the knob striker.
    Huge difference.

    I understand.

    Problem is, if your doors open out you can easily be hindered or trapped by someone wedgimg the door or placing some other obstruction in front of it.

    One question, How are your hinge pins secured?

    This is why storm shelters always have inward opening doors in case debris gets piled in front of it during a tornado.

    Don't forget about the rest of your exterior doors...
    And first floor windows for that matter...
