Sorry for the late reply I've been at work all day. So to sum up my side of the story I would like to start off where it began upon logging into the server and seeing @DillionD and asking him what had happened he explained to me that our humble little home had been ransacked by some thieves. At this point, I was upset but understood that this is dayZ and nothing you have will last forever so I was okay with it, but after asking @DillionD how could they have gotten into our home with the wire being taken off of the gate we could only assume someone had must have ghosted into our base which led to the current forum post I would also like to add that the idea of a bunch of people playing leapfrog to get into our base was the last idea we would have had. After going through some of the stuff that was thrown on the ground in order to claim our car tent as well as our Military Tent @DillionD informed me of a car that had been left outside through IC voice chat after looking at the car we both could only assume that whoever left it must have been the ones who came inside to steal and that if they returned we would make contact with them in an attempt to strike back at those who had broken into our humble abode. after that, we closed the gate a returned inside the building to try and make room for the stuff that had been tossed on the ground in order to "hurry and pack up what was needed". A few minutes later while I was in the back of the warehouse after coming back from getting a drink I could overhear @DillionD arguing with the ones who had broken into our home. So I run closer to try and figure out what is happening and ask IC if these are the people who broke in he says yes they said they were here for their car. @DillionD then told them to leave multiple times but they continued to argue with him. I also would like to add that I understand that zombies had been a problem at the time, but the opposing party was given more than enough time to take care of a few little zombies and leave. after a good 2-3 mins of arguing @DillionD opened the doors and told them once more you have 5 seconds to leave or else. then a shot from the opposing side rang out towards me and @DillionD and being trapped in a warehouse with nowhere to go except out the door that everyone was shooting at I decided that given the situation my life was in danger and I had no choice but to defend myself.
