Florida Dad Saves Daughter From Kidnapping

Journalist

All dads want to be heroes for their kids. And funeral director Terry Brackney, 51, might have done that when he saved his daughter Amber Brackney, 17, from a possible kidnapping. She was leaving the family home one Tuesday evening when she found that the end of the driveway was blocked with barrels. Having a healthy amount of suspicion, she managed to maneuver around the barrels without leaving the vehicle.

Terry heard the commotion outside. He grabbed his gun and ran outside, where he found a group of teens trying to break into his garage. The police suspects that the teens had blocked the driveway to force Amber out of her car, with the idea of grabbing her while she was trying to move the barrels.

The group of teens was lead by Keilon Johnson, 19. Terry immediately opened fire on the group. After they fled into the woods, Terry found that the group had unscrewed some of his security lights - possibly in preparation for an another kidnap attempt.

The teens were apprehended after a neighbor who had seen a suspicious car flee the scene called the cops. They stopped the jeep and found Keilon Johnson, 19, Austin French, 17, Tyree Johnson, 16, and Kamauri Horn, 15. They were carrying a knife, guns and a roll of tape.

"The first goal was to force her out of her car by blocking the road with barrels and garbage cans. (However, their intended victim drove around the barrels and kept going.)" said a statement from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office. "They then planned to head to her house, confront and subdue her father - who they believed to be wealthy - and rob the home."
