A handicapped veteran opened fire on a pair of armed intruders inside his home. The incident occurred at a mobile home community in Savannah, Georgia early Wednesday morning last week.

Lam Blake told WTOC he was awoken by the sound of two men knocking down his front door, yelling that they were the police. But Blake quickly looked at his surveillance camera and knew they weren’t police officers.

“I immediately grabbed my 9mm Smith and Wesson M&P, loaded it up, and waited for them to come all the way in,” he said.

The two suspects entered the home, saw Blake with his gun drawn, and opened fire. Blake fired back and the intruders fled the scene. Bullet holes were visible in the kitchen and bedroom wall.

Police are still searching for the suspects, described by WTOC as black males, one of whom was wearing a yellow jacket and driving a dark Chevrolet Silverado.

Anyone with information on this case should call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020, or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020.

Thankfully, Blake was uninjured during the attempted home invasion. He says he always keeps two guns locked and loaded by his bed.

“This gun saved my life. Without this gun, I might not be here right now,” said Blake.

    Smart man to be armed at all times. The fact that criminals are now attempting brazen forced entries should tell people that they no longer fear the law.
