The victim, John Fuquay, says his wife and children were inside of their house when the group of young men started going through his carport. Fuquay says when he walked outside,the suspects pulled a gun on him .

"At first I thought it was a joke and then I realized now that that's a gun pointed right at my stomach," said Fuquay. "That's when one of them shouted out something then they took off."
