A Florida man who showed up at his neighbor's house wearing an AR-15 and wearing a bulletproof vest is now behind bars.
Tom D & # 39; Errico and his family believe that Kevin Flaherty, 48, had the mission to kill the night he rang the bell.
The surveillance images captured the terrifying moment when Flaherty arrived at his neighbor's house in Boca Raton on Wednesday night.

Flaherty even put his hand on the camera, apparently indicating that he did not want the family to know he was the one at the door.
Both D & # 39; Errico, who was in San Diego for a business trip, and his family could see Flaherty through the Ring cell phone app.
The motion detection application allows owners to see everything that happens outside their property on their phones.
When D & # 39; Erricos saw Flaherty at the door of their house just before 11 pm, they immediately called 911.
