Frederick, MD (WTXF) - Ryan Manchester was in his kitchen last week when he heard the "loudest bang" on the front door of his family's home.
It happened on December 5th at about 1:30 in the afternoon. The senior in high school said he was home alone, so he peaked into the living room, worried he'd come face-to-face with a burglar.
"I was relieved to see a deer, and not a person," said Manchester.
The 17-year-old grabbed his phone and captured video of the uninvited deer ransacking his family's home.

He then called 9-1-1, who informed him they would send Animal Control to deal with the incident. Animal Control told Manchester they would take about 15 minutes to get there.
The teen decided that was too long, and a made a call to his dad.
After some convincing, Manchester was able to convince his dad to tell him where he could find the keys to their gun safe.
The high school student said he brought his dog upstairs before shooting the deer in his living room.
