Florida Man Returns Fire Against Armed Robber

posted on October 31, 2015

After an armed robber fired two shots at him, an Orange County, Florida, man returned fire early Sunday morning, striking the assailant and ending the attack, the sheriff’s office told the Orlando Sentinel

Tyrell Owens had just returned home when Wilmar Jolteus, 32, a convicted felon with 11 prior arrests, allegedly attempted to rob him. “Jolteus discharged a firearm at victim Owens in an attempt to cause his death,” according to the arrest report. “Owens’ death was prevented only by his superior tactical positioning and return fire. ... Owens, in fear for his life, sought cover behind the wall. The suspect fired at least two rounds at Owens and Owens drew his concealed handgun and returned fire.” 

Jolteus was charged with first-degree attempted murder with a firearm and attempted robbery with a weapon at Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for gunshot wounds to his leg and buttock.
