Armed Florida Homeowner Shoots At Home Invader, Driving Him Off

posted on March 21, 2016

Awaking to find a burglar inside his home after midnight Wednesday morning, a Boca Raton, Fla., resident retrieved a firearm and fired four shots at the man, sending the intruder fleeing, Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies told the Sun Sentinel.

Noting that the unknown intruder or intruders “were a lot bigger than me and they were probably dangerous if they got their hands on me,” David Cappitelli said he was fortunate to have a firearm handy. “If I hadn't been standing exactly where I was to lean down and pick up my weapon, I would not have had one,” he said.

According to Cappitelli, after he fired, the burglar ran toward the sidewalk and disappeared into the night—but not before apparently stealing prescription medicine, money and a special ring from the World War II Normandy invasion.
