Seven people in a Dallas home were shaken up after a terrifying home invasion had a teenage girl staring at an AK-47 pointed at her head.

Dallas police said three men forced their way inside a home on Reynolds Avenue around 1 a.m. Saturday.

One family member, 19-year-old Maria Herrera, hid her two brothers under the covers as the intruders made their way room to room.

When she thought they had left, she popped her head up from under the blanket only to be faced with an AK-47, according to police.

"The gun was probably three inches away from my head, that's how close it was," she said.

Police said one of the suspects hit Herrera's father with the back of the gun and yanked a gold chain off his neck. Herrera's mother hid inside a bathtub.

Police reports said the intruders left with purses, money and a car.
