Armed Florida Homeowner Stops Break-In

A Florida homeowner was forced to shoot a suspect trying to break into his home earlier this week.

The suspect, whom deputies identified as 25-year-old Emanuel Edgardo Sosa Lopez, tried to break into the home in the Azalea Park neighborhood in east Orange County. But the homeowner used his firearm to stop the break-in.

According to media reports, the suspect fled to the Florida Highway Patrol office a short distance from the home. Orange County deputies were called, and Sosa Lopez was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
