Violent Home Invader Shot and Killed

(Released by HST Public Affairs)A violent New Years day home invasion ended with the home owners shaken but safe thanks to their ability to fight fire with fire.

The armed invader, who had a long and violent police record, broke into a home in Lakeland, Florida and began shooting at the two people inside. One of the occupants was able to fire back, striking and killing the invader.

The Polk County Sheriff, Grady Judd, sent a clear message to any others thinking of doing the same in his county.

 

“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision – if you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County.”

Thankfully, no one else was injured.

The investigation is ongoing, but so far no charges have been brought against the armed homeowner.
