Some men went to a house in Sacramento. They wanted to rob the people who lived there. They did not get to rob them. In fact, it turned out bad for one of the men.

The owner of the house answered his door in the morning. A man pointed a gun at him and made him open the door. Other men came in.

The owner of the house had a roommate who lived with him. The roommate went and got a gun. He came back and began to shoot the men who came in. Their dog was killed and one of the men got shot.

The men ran away without taking anything. The one who was shot went to a hospital. He was arrested at the hospital for what he did.

People at the house said they had drugs. This might be why the men wanted to break in.
