FL: Teen suspects take off when homeowner gets his gun: "Police are searching for two teenagers who got a surprise when they tried to attack a man in his own home. Police said the teenagers forced their way into Bob Martin's apartment on Adriel Lane on Sunday and pointed a gun at him. But when the retired Air Force sergeant noticed it was a BB or pellet gun, he got his own real gun out and the teenagers took off. 'They come darn close to getting shot real quick. I don't like anyone putting even a toy gun in my face. Whether it's a pellet gun or toy gun I don't know,' Martin said. When the teenagers fled, they left behind the BB gun. Police were checking it for fingerprints."
