A homeowner realized that someone was breaking into his home, so he defended himself and his property, and the chilling moment was caught on video.

In the video posted to Facebook by WDSU, you'll the suspect start slowly making his way onto the back porch of a home in Jackson County, Missouri. The suspect eventually muscles his way through the door, then quickly exits and is held at gunpoint.

I guess he wasn't counting on anyone being home, or maybe wasn't counting on anyone being home with a loaded weapon.

He found out the hard way, but it could have been much worse.

No word on if the suspect was arrested.
