    2 masked home invaders taken care of in the good ol' FL!

    http://www2.tbo.com/content/2010/sep...er/news-metro/



    DAVENPORT - A Davenport homeowner shot two suspected burglars today, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.

    At approximately 11:50, Davenport police responded to an occupied burglary in progress at 1077 Merrimack Boulevard.

    According to police reports:

    Two males had broken the master bedroom window and entered the house, where the husband and wife were asleep in their bed. The wife woke to the sound of breaking glass and saw a masked gunman standing in the room and a second suspect climbing into the room.

    She woke her husband, who armed himself with a handgun and began to shoot.

    One of the suspects was shot in the head, the other in the torso. Both suspects attempted to flee but were apprehended a short time later and taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center. The suspect who was shot in the head is listed in extremely critical condition, according to the sheriff's office.

    Two additional males were found hiding behind a fence at the property and are in custody. All four suspects are teenagers.

    "Preliminary information gathered at the scene indicates that the victim was protecting his wife and his home against a masked intruder and his partner," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

    Names of the suspects have not been released and the investigation is ongoing, the sheriff's office said.



    I wonder what Grady Judd will have to say about this one!

    Handled just how it should have. This should be the turn out more often and them might start having second thoughts about pulling this kind of crap.

    I wonder if the homeowner will think about a higher caliber after striking one in the head and one in the torso....and they both managed to flee.

    But overall...good for him for being armed and keeping safe.

    That's pretty good shooting, out of a sound sleep, with possibly very little light.

    Where did you guys see the caliber? People have survived headshots from major calibers. Unlikely, but possible.

    Uncle Ted would approve...sort of...
    When you break into a home wearing a mask, the coroner should be called.

    Update:

    The homeowner has been arrested. Not because of the shooting itself (which clearly meets the standard for Florida's castle doctrine), but because drugs were found in the home during the investigation.

    One has to wonder if that is why the home was selected by the burglars.

    A supplier coming around for a missed payment, perhaps? Not so great anymore.
