    Better get ready then.

    Start with your house. Sandbags are an effective and cheap force protection option, but can be labor intensive. I'm sure I don't have to tell you to board up all the windows. If you don't feel you can secure your whole complex, don't try! Pick a fallback spot and concentrate your efforts there.

    Forewarned is forearmed--you have an advantage in that he let you know he's coming, but you don't know when he'll actually be there. Unfortunately, that means you'll need to post sentries. It's possible to mitigate your personnel requirements w/ technological substitutes (JLENS, VSAT, CCTV, etc.), but those are markedly expensive and you probably don't have time to prep an adequate setup.

    Sentry duty is notoriously sapping, both of motivation and energy. In the short-term, you can offset this w/ stimulants: caffeine, Adderal, meth. Cocaine probably isn't a great option, too short term w/ too much of a crash.

    You need to arm yourself, of course. Home Alone was an entertaining comedy, but that shit doesn't work in real life. You know he's coming at you with an AR-15, so get some fire superiority--AK 47 is 7.62 mm. Don't be shy, go full auto. Or just say to hell with it and use explosives. The risk of blue-on-blue is high, of course, but hey, can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, right?

    You should have screamed back and threatened him with sodomy.

    I did threaten to call the police but the problem is that the number is hidden

    That's not good at all. It means he's thinking ahead. I'm telling you, you're dealing with someone very dangerous here. You need to start getting ready NOW.

    You should have just said "This is the police. Your phone number has been logged. We will be there shortly."

    You're being seriously threatened and your first instinct was to come here first, before calling the Police? Try calling them first to see what your options are then come back here and let us know what's up.

    You need to set your house up, Home Alone style. He'll never know what's hit him when he comes upstairs and a paint pot smacks him in the face.

    Who actually thinks he needs to call the police? Seriously, what a waste of their time. Even if crazy dude was actually going to show up with a machine gun over some phone calls (protip, he's not), he just called the wrong number. Nothing more to it.

    What are the police going to do? Track this dude down using their SECRET POLICE PHONEBOOK and be like, "Hey, did you threaten this kid?" And then he'll say, "Uh...no. No, I didn't! Ha!" Then the police will all confer and be like, "Man, this dude is a criminal mastermind. I'll guess we'll just have to let him kill this kid and hope he leaves some DNA behind for CSI to find." And the other cops will be like, "Yeah, those CSI guys are crazy smart. We're lucky we have them to solve all the crimes!"

    Then they'll go eat donuts.

    I think Bryan has some good advice for this situation. Another option are decoys. You could always post up party invites on facebook and wait for the crowd to show up, giving you the advantage of target confusion. If he does manage to pop off a couple of your partygoers, hopefully by that time you can pinpoint his location and strike back with the weapons you aquired per Bryans advice. Either that or try to flee with the other people attempting to escape, hoping that his automatic weapon has not targeted your back during your attempt, or just find a hiding hole to wait it out. Just hope his modivation has not led him to employ hunting dogs to aid in his rampage. In that case, hiding is not really an option.

    Either way it looks like you need to take the appropriate steps to prepare yourself for the inevitable.
