    "I've been vigilant ever since, but not going to stay up all night with a shotgun sitting on your front steps," he said.

    Kathy Leombruno was driving home Sunday when she came to face with one of the men, armed on a bike.

    "He must have had the pistol in his hand, and he just turned it to my car and shot it three times," she said.

    Leombruno's SUV was not hit, and she says she instinctively chased after the three.

    "I was thinking I wanted to kill them, and I'm thinking I don't know what was in his pistol," she added.

    On Tuesday, Natick Police released surveillance video showing three men riding bikes. Neighbors say police chased them this weekend, leading two of them to ditch their bikes.
