Armed Citizen Takes On The Same Gang A Second Time

posted on September 28, 2015

Homeowner Juan Flores of Palm Beach, Fla., was at home when a man approached his door with what looked like a food delivery. Suspecting his intentions, Flores told him to leave, only to see another man get out of the car carrying a rifle. He shouted to his family to call 911, but the suspects fled before they arrived. The man who wielded the gun has since been arrested, according to the Palm Beach Post.

This was on July 28. More recently, on Aug. 13, Flores came home to find two alleged members of the same street gang burglarizing his house. One of the invaders reportedly raised a rifle when Flores confronted them, so the homeowner shot them both with his handgun, killing one and wounding the other. In doing so, Flores proved to these criminals that he would not be an easy target.
