Florida Homeowner Stands Ground, Shoots And Kills Armed Invader

posted on July 29, 2016

“This neighborhood gone, man.” 

That was the statement of a Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., resident to News Miami 7, which is precisely why homeowner Curtis Traylor has a permit and a firearm. Broward Sheriff’s detectives say that 51-year-old Gary Peterson was wearing dark clothes, a mask and holding a firearm as he began forcing his way into Traylor’s home at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

“His end game was to get into the home. He did so. At that point, shots were fired,” said Officer Gina Carter. “He barged inside the home and subsequently died inside the home.” 

Witnesses say Traylor argued with Peterson outside the house before he was attacked. Neighbors also believe Peterson—who had previous charges, including robbery with a firearm—was roaming homeless in the streets. Another resident added, “I probably would’ve done the same thing. People work too hard for anybody to come in and break in their house.”
