James Cvengros grabbed his gun and digital camera after hearing a loud commotion outside his Idaho apartment last year. Moments later his camera records as Twain Thomas breaks down the door and charges into the apartment. Off screen several shots can be heard as Cvengros fires his weapon at the invading Thomas.

Cvengro’s video, which was shown in court, was uploaded to YouTube by Idaho State Journal News. It shows Cvengro’s actions, which the court ruled was self-defense.

Thomas was charged with aggravated assault and attempted murder in the second degree.
