Three suspects, one posing as a police officer, staged a home-invasion robbery in Diamond Bar tonight, at a home shared by a mother, grandmother and three children, a sheriff's sergeant said.

Deputies responded about 8:45 p.m. to the 400 block of Charmingdale Road, according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Christina Baker.

"There were three male suspects. One impersonated a police officer. He was dressed in a tactical vest," Baker said."No insignia was seen." She was not sure whether he announced that he was a police officer."   The suspects "herded the family into one room and tied up one female," Baker said.

No physical injuries to the victims were reported, according to Baker.

The amount of the loss was not known because crime scene investigators were working in the home first before the family could check for stolen property, Baker said.

"It looks like (the suspects)  may have gone through (the house) but it's not ransacked," she said.

You have to prove you are in danger of great bodily harm and you cannot retreat. (There is no stand your ground law in Calif) If crooks break into your house and you are at home, you could be justified in shooting. If they are outside and stealing your car, you cannot shoot them. If you are justified in shooting them you still will have lots of suspicion on the part of the cops and may have to get a lawyer for civil suits but it is better than being dead. So do not shoot unless you are certain that the alternative is your or your familie's death. Also no warning shots. Legally there is no such thing. A 'warning shot' is a shot to kill that missed. if you shoot, shoot to kill. cool video http://www.caintv.com/video-new-glock-commercial-sur
