As we've seen in several stories this month, you do not mess with mom. The homeowner opened fire with his 9mm and sent the intruders running. A blood trail followed them outside the house but ended at the street suggesting the men got into a vehicle and fled.

Police contacted local hospitals to be on the lookout for patients with gunshot wounds but none came forward. Now police are asking the public for help finding the two men. The description is of black males in white t-shirts and blue pants, one with a bandanna over his face.

The suspects left with more than just a gunshot wound; they made off with a tablet and several other items when they fled.
