A Chinese gun enthusiast living in Lansing, Michigan did not hesitate to fire his gun when three burglars broke into his apartment.
These intruders had no idea who they’re messing with.
The incident occurred on December 6 when a man identified as Zhang, a student of Michigan State University, was studying in his dining room, CRI reported. At least one of the three burglars is suspected of being armed.
At 2:56 a.m., Zhang heard the sound of a door being opened from downstairs followed by footsteps.
Zhang went down to see what was going on. To his surprise, he found three men—allegedly one white or Hispanic man, one black man and an unidentified one wearing a hoodie.
Zhang, who owns several guns including a Hawk 981 shotgun, shot at the men and called the police. He woke up his roommate and the thieves escaped.
Cops found a dead body weeks later and confirmed that it was one of the men who fled after the intrusion. Apparently, he died while trying to escape.
This appears to be the third time thieves tried to get near Zhang. When he moved in September, his roommate’s luggage was stolen. In November, his car was also stolen.
Zhang’s case follows an earlier incident involving one Chinese-American woman in suburban Atlanta who also shot at three armed burglars, all of which was caught on tape.
