One, wearing a “Jason” mask and gloves on both hands, used a semi-automatic pistol, while the other was a 22-year-old armed with a shotgun. In the ensuing exchange gunfire, one robber was killed at the scene. The other died from his injuries in a hospital.
The homeowner was wounded during the invasion, and subsequently hospitalized, but was reported to be in stable condition.
Police tracked the alleged accomplices to a nearby wooded area using a sheriff’s K-9 unit, and they were arrested and charged with multiple offenses. The homeowner told police he thought he recognized one of the alleged assailants from a prior online sales transaction.
