"They were dressed in black, all had masks on, and all had gloves on," said Mahoney....
Mahoney says the suspects broke in through a glass door in the back of the house. After entering the residence, the suspects encountered the homeowner's 23-year-old son, who also lives there. The resident was carrying an AR-15.The grandfather is now complaining about the AR-15 giving an "unfair advantage." 3/30/17 ABC channel 8:
