People who were outside their residences were forced inside at gun point.
Carry your CCW all the time. Have the wife lock the doors while you're outside. If someone tries to force you inside at gunpoint put up a fight and don't go inside. You are the perimeter defense and letting armed adversaries into the house is the last thing you want. The wife can barricade in the house to protect the daughter.
Time is on your side. The last thing these guys want is a long confrontation outside the house where anyone can see and respond.
