    Lyman High student fatally shot during home invasion

    Authorities say Ryan Realford was killed trying to break into a house and escape a deputy sheriff. (SEMINOLE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE)

    Gabrielle Finley | Sentinel Staff Writer
    February 24, 2008

    ALTAMONTE SPRINGS - As a corrections officer, Debra Hutcherson deals with criminals every day, but she never thought she would have to come face to face with one in the middle of the night.

    But shortly after midnight Saturday, a young man who a deputy says was trying to escape capture tried to break into the house where Hutcherson, her husband, Floyd, and three small grandchildren were sleeping.

    Floyd Hutcherson fired his gun.

    The result: The intruder, 17-year-old Ryan Realford, is dead.

    Floyd Hutcherson later would not talk about the incident.

    "When I found out the guy who died was 17 . . . my condolences go out to the family because that was someone's child," Debra Hutcherson said Saturday.

    "But what was he supposed to do?"

    One of Realford's friends, Victoria Felder, lives just a few houses from where he was shot.

    Felder said she knew Realford, a Lyman High School student, had trouble with the law before, but never thought it would cause his death.

    "When I found out . . . I still don't believe it," Felder said.

    "I don't know what's going on with our juveniles," Hutcherson said.

    Realford was arrested in January 2007 on battery charges at Lyman High, records show.

    Here's how Hutcherson and the Seminole County Sheriff's Office described what happened early Saturday:

    A uniformed deputy was driving an unmarked Sheriff's Office patrol car when he was approached by a young man who appeared to be selling drugs.

    The man, later identified as Realford, came closer to the patrol car with an "unidentified substance" in his hand and started talking, but soon ran away after he realized he was talking to a deputy.

    The deputy radioed for backup as he watched the man jump a nearby fence and run near some houses.

    Moments after the 12:30 a.m. incident began, Hutcherson said, one of her grandchildren was screaming that someone was trying to get into their house.

    "They were screaming 'He's out there on the patio!' " Hutcherson said.

    Floyd Hutcherson left the bedroom and started looking around for the man, while his wife looked for the two guns they had by their bedside.

    Debra Hutcherson said she handed her husband a .357-caliber handgun.

    "Floyd told him to get off the patio, but he wouldn't," Hutcherson said.

    Floyd Hutcherson was standing in front of Realford with the gun, and Debra Hutcherson stood in the background armed with a .38-caliber gun.

    "I was just screaming for him to get out of here," Hutcherson said.

    "Then Floyd fired a shot to scare him," Hutcherson said.

    "But the shot actually hit him."

    Realford ran away from the screened patio, but didn't get far.

    Deputies found him conscious and lying on the ground at the side of the house.

    Paramedics took the teen to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he later died.

    Deputies were investigating the shooting later Saturday.

    They said it was unlikely Floyd Hutcherson will face charges because of the state's Castle Doctrine Law, which allows a person to use deadly force against an intruder.

    Just a month ago, Debra Hutcherson said, someone tried to break into the home through the front door.

    "I went out and got an alarm system thinking I was doing things to keep us safe," Hutcherson said.

    Now, even more trouble could be brought to the home that's not even theirs.

    The home belongs to her relatives, and the couple were staying there until renovations to their home are completed.

    But with six months until the house is ready, Hutcherson is looking to live elsewhere, in fear of retaliation against the family.

    Until then, a deputy will be parked outside the home to deter any more violence, Hutcherson said.
    SHE got it right...what is wrong with juveniles these days?

    I feel for them having to deal with the emotional aftermath, and feeling the need to move (they are probably right).

    If this is what happened all I can say is STUPID! You never fire a weapon to "scare" someone, you fire to neutralize a situation. This will also bring the anti's out about Castle Doctrine. BG was outside, GG was inside house. Without Castle Doctrine he would be facing at the least manslaughter charges.

    I think I know:

    1. A socialist government that breeds a sense of undeserved entitlement.

    2. A society that praises mediocrity.

    3. A lax criminal justice system that doesn’t appropriately enforce, prosecute and punish.

    4. A loss of religious and spiritual faith among the general population.

    5. People who are affected by the above points keep having kids, but refuse to raise them correctly.

    I blame the 60’s and 70’s and all the dang hippies. I hate hippies.

    The loss of any human life is always tragic, but this kid got what he deserved. Hopefully it will serve as a lesson to his peers.

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    Prior to the 1960s family support laws were strictly enforced in most states. During the 1960s do-gooder congressmen in the big DC puzzle palace decided that kids do not need a working father in the home. Politicians said the the US government could do a much better job of taking care of mothers and kids.


    Now over four decades later, we have the third generation of kids without fathers in their lives.

    Makes me wanna puke.

    Another story running here:

    Altamonte Springs Homeowner Shoots, Kills Intruder - Central Florida News 13

    ALTAMONTE SPRINGS -- A 17-year-old suspect was shot and killed in Altamonte Springs early Saturday morning after deputies said he ran from them and into a nearby home.

    According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Department, the incident began when Ryan Realford approached a uniformed deputy in an unmarked car.

    Police said he appeared to be selling drugs. When he saw the officer's uniform, he ran down the street.

    According to the sheriff's office, Realford ran to a house on the 600 block of Lake Mobile Drive.

    The homeowner said Realford removed a locked screen door and was trying to enter his house through a sliding glass door.

    The homeowner said he asked Realford to leave. When he would not, the homeowner told deputies he shot him.

    "If he breaks into your house and you ask him to leave and he doesn't leave why don't you come get us? Why shoot a 17-year-old in the back?" said LaShanda Alexander, Realford’s cousin.

    According to deputies, the investigation continues and the homeowner likely won't be charged.

    A Florida law allows a homeowner to use deadly force if someone breaks into their home.
    "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground."

    He fired to hit him and said it was to scare him, I bet! He thought it would not be as bad if it was an accident. That's some good shooting when you can't miss!

    but, being an accident will make it worse if the BGs family want to make something out of it, such as getting $$$$

    you hit the nail on the head once again . Act like a man be treated like a man. I hate the terms like Juvenal crime and hate crime crime is an act committed against society and should not be debased by qualifiers . the crime will have the same impact upon the victim regardless of the bad guys age sex color or religion ect
    Never approach a Bull from the front , a Horse from the rear or a Fool from any direction!
