A Haiku man armed with an AR-15 rifle scared off three men trying to rob his house earlier this month, Maui Police reported in a news release.
Police say the man confronted the suspects after they brandished a shiny handgun and forced another victim into a bedroom.
The rifleman fired a single shot, which forced the suspects to flee the house. They fired four shots as they fled.
No one was injured during the incident, but the victims said the suspects made off with $3,000.
Police stress an investigation is underway and are circulating a description of the suspects.
The National Rifle Association holds that Americans possess more than 8 million AR-15s today and has frequently been termed, “America’s Rifle.”
