Once again, break-ins can happen at any time of the day, not just late at night when everyone is sleeping. This incident took place around 12:50 PM.
After receiving surveillance footage, the police determined that the suspect approached the home through the backyard and entered the home illegally by throwing a flower pot through a glass door. Unfortunately for him, the homeowner was armed and prepared. He shot the suspect three times.
Police also found a shotgun belonging to the suspect in the backyard. So who knows how this would have turned out had the homeowner not defended himself.
“The castle doctrine is very clear in Florida law. A person’s home is his refuge,” Judd said in a statement. “The homeowner did exactly what he had a right to do. I commend him for protecting himself and defending his home.” via Click Orlando.
