A masked gunman was caught on security footage attempting a home invasion in Washington state, rushing up behind a fast-reacting woman, who managed to shut her front door and lock it just before he could gain entry.
Check out the Ring camera video ... it starts with the woman's male companion walking onto a porch and unlocking and opening the door before disappearing into the house in Kent, WA.
Moments later, the woman steps up onto the porch and is about to enter her abode when she suddenly feels someone behind her and spins around.
The ski-masked suspect dashes up to her with a gun in one hand. But the woman is too quick, running inside, slamming the door closed and bolting it.
The would-be intruder desperately tries to force open the door, but his efforts are futile. He then turns and sees the camera recording him, smashing it with the butt of his gun and cutting off the clip.
We've reached out to Kent PD to see if they've caught the perpetrator ... so far no word back.
