Handcuffed n tied my cousin, wife, mom and his two friends and Forced them all on the ground. They had guns and even AK 47. Professionally tackled the guys and disarmed my cousin n took his gun. They are not amateurs. My cousins wife had managed to call for help before they got to her upstairs and dragged her downstairs. My mom had managed to tell the kids to lock themselves upstairs and not come out. The two guys who came to help shortly after being called by my cousins wife, arrived and were shot at as the 7 guys realized help had come and they made their escape by shooting the guys. One in hospital and other one got grazed in the head by a bullet so just missed death. They have cameras so if I get clips then I will send.
