Confronted With Three Home Invaders, Florida Homeowner Kills One, Sends Two Fleeing

posted on December 3, 2016

When three unknown men piled out of a car and approached his home Monday morning, a Sunrise, Fla., man armed himself with a shotgun and called 911 because he feared they might break in, ABC News reports. He was right: While he was on the phone with the dispatcher, the three smashed a glass door.

“They’re in my house right now,” homeowner Warren Darlow, 31, whispered to the dispatcher. Fearing that the men might arm themselves with one of the handguns he keeps in plain sight around his home and come after him, Darlow fired his shotgun, killing one intruder and sending the other two fleeing. 

Police later arrested two men, both in their 20s, and charged them with murder. At their arraignment, the judge said, “You’re young men ... I don’t know what you did. I don’t know what you didn’t do ... But here’s what I know: You don’t want to wind up dead.”
