Three armed robbers got the shock of their lives when they broke into a Florida apartment and were shot at by the person inside, police said.
Chilling surveillance video shows the trio walking up to a second-story Neptune Beach residence on Tuesday evening, as one of them uses his body to push in the door.
Seconds later, about five gunshots ring out and the three men scurrying out, with one even leaping over the balcony to the ground.
Police said one of the home invaders was shot in the chest and was being treated at a hospital, local outlet WJXT reported.

They just targeted a second story apt? Ok
Sick of these drug dealer community stories recounted to sound like some stupid hero defending his sanctuary. Blech
Must be hard times for second story men, what with so many people staying home all day.
Adds new meaning to lets go get some. They should have went through the drive through.
These look like Ralph Northam’s sons in blackface. Why weren’t they self quarantining in Virginia?
Yep, those pesky Amish again.
I’m amazed at how many people have crappy doors.
I have multiple weapons, cameras, and alarms.
But the first line of defense I have are metal or heavy metal-reinforced doors -— with frame reinforcement like Door Armor (a 4 foot long strike plate that mounts with 8 12 cm screws) and accompanying hinge reinforcement.
Two Assa Ably deadbolts (keyed alike).
It would take a bartering ram to get through my doors — and the AA locks can’t be bumped (and the keys can’t be duplicated).
It’s just not that hard.
batering = “battering”
My next door local beach, 3 miles south. Ride my bike down there all the time.
In before the “Needs more range time” idiocy remark.
My main take away (other than the crappy door) is one of these guys was shot in the chest and still ran away.
Pistols make you bleed out
I’m thinking there’s a broken ankle in that vid, too.
What a delight to see that vid.
He doesn’t need more range time. He needs a larger caliber weapon !
I was thinking just a shotgun.
Hey, he does get stuff right occasionally! Florida man, that is.
The perps are lucky none of them was impaled on a lawn flamingo when jumping off the balcony.
Nice trick, using 3 armed robbers because having 3 arms they can steal more stuff.
All three looked quite active on the way out. Im going to guess caliber was less a factor than shot placement here.
Flamingo in the flaming hole. That would leave a mark.
if you have windows on the first floor, how does having a super door help?
