A heroic father from Florida bravely confronted a teen gang who attempted to kidnap his daughter Amber Brackney on Tuesday night, according to authorities.
The 17-year-old young girl had been leaving the family home on Preservation Path, Crestview as she found the end of her driveway blocked with barrels.
A teenage boy then broke into her car and was able to move around the obstacles to escape down the street in her vehicle.

Amber's father Terry Brackney grabbed his gun and ran outside after seeing something was going wrong outside. He then tried to find the group of teens trying to force their way into his garage.
According to Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, the 51-year-old heroic dad opened fire on the group who then escaped into the woods. He later found the teens had been removing his security lights, possibly for the second kidnap attempt.
A neighbor made a felony traffic stop on Highway 4 as he realized the 2016 White Jeep Liberty was leaving the scene and called the cops.
