A Florida man says he was playing videogames just before 1am on Friday before he was forced to shoot three armed intruders who broke into his home.
Two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, while the third was taken to the hospital for treatment.
The three men broke a window to gain entry to the home
They then aimed their weapons at the homeowner, who managed to grab his own glock 9mm pistol and defend himself.
Fox News has the story:
A teen was facing charges for a would-be armed home invasion robbery in Florida in which his two accomplices were shot and killed and he was wounded, authorities said.
The person who shot them was the homeowner victim who had a gun and used it to defend himself when he encountered the intruders in his home in Wesley Chapel shortly before 1 a.m. Friday, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said.
“The victim in this case was exercising his Second Amendment right to protect himself in his home,” Nocco said.
Luis Casado, 21, and Khyle Durham, 21, were shot as they walked down a narrow hallway toward the homeowner, the sheriff said. They had guns and covered their faces with black masks.
Jeremiah Trammel, 19, was shot after Casado and Durham went down, Nocco said. He said he ran out of the house as the homeowner went to get another gun to replace the one he had because it jammed.
Nocco said Trammel didn't get far. A neighbor with a gun caught him and then held him until deputies arrived.
Thank God for the Second Amendment.
God knows what could have happened had the homeowner not protected himself.
In a country where half the population wants the police defunded, it is vital that Americans are able to defend themselves and their families from violent criminals.
