The Daily Ridge reported an alleged intruder, 27-year-old Tyriek Tramaine Washington, was hospitalized in “critical but stable condition”After being shot Friday morning by a homeowner in Haines City (Florida),
Washington was found inside the home by the homeowner who has a concealed firearm permit. An additional suspect is also suspected to have been present.
The homeowner’s girlfriend was with him and, fearing for her life and his own life too, he drew his gun and fired, hitting Washington with four rounds.
FOX 13 noted Washington allegedly fled the scene after being shot, “but officers quickly caught up with…[him].”
Another suspect also fled and managed to escape capture by Sunday morning.
Breitbart News pointed out Haines City police chief Greg Goreck responded to the incident by saying, “When a person breaks the sanctity of a person’s home, the average person would rightly conclude their purpose was evil. The homeowner had every right to take the action he did in this case based on the circumstances.”
Goreck added: “We live in Florida…most people are armed.”
