Florida Man Shoots Aggressive Home Invader

posted on December 29, 2015

In Osceola County, Fla., a homeowner was sitting in his living room with his wife and a friend when they heard a sound at the back door. He retrieved his handgun and went to investigate, finding a man who had entered the screened-in porch and was trying to access the kitchen. The resident instructed the suspect to leave, but the suspect reportedly attacked him and was shot. 

The suspect was transported to a hospital and eventually died from his injuries. Twis Lizasuain with the Osceola County Sheriff's Office told WESH that the homeowner defended his family: “He spoke with that individual and asked him who he was and what he was doing in his home. That individual lunged at the homeowner twice, which forced the homeowner to shoot the suspect.”
