What would you do if your neighbors home was being broken into while they were on vacation?

We recently came across an article that covered a home invasion. A neighbor was watching the house while the home owners were out of town on vacation. This neighbor was alerted by the home owners because their alarm company had called them because their alarm had gone off.

The neighbor watching the home then went over to see what was happening, and confronted the two suspects. In the process, he gets into a wrestling match and ultimately fires his gun at them.

Terry Robbins, a concealed carry permit holder, was reportedly alerted of a possible break-in by the out-of-town homeowners, who had received a phone call from the alarm company. They apparently asked him to go check out the situation.

Robbins says he then caught two men, identified as Jimmy Walker and Justin Blair, trying to break into the house.

“I told them, ‘Freeze! Hit the floor! I will shoot you!’ ” he told WCHS-TV.

A struggle reportedly ensued between Robbins and Walker, forcing the man to fire his gun in self-defense. With his accomplice shot and bleeding, Blair reportedly fled the scene.

If you were the neighbor watching the home, what would you have done? Would you have gone over to confront the suspects, or would you have watched from a distance since no one was in the home that could be hurt, while calling the police?
