A man living in Huntington Station, New York, appeared in court Monday to face manslaughter charges stemming from an attempted burglary back in August in which he opened fire on an armed intruder breaking into his home.
Authorities say that five men worked together in an effort to break into Youssef Abdel-Gawad’s home, which he shares with his brother and parents. Four of the men hid outside behind a metal shed while one man, armed with a gun, went to the back sliding glass door to get inside.
The break-in was caught on the family’s video surveillance system, which was shared with local media.
