Stock - gun in handIt’s usually advisable to have your own firearm in a self defense situation, but I guess these folks did alright all things considered.

Four men were in a home based studio recording rap music in the Orlando, FL area when an armed man burst into the home through a window.

One of the four men tackled the suspect, while the home’s owner grabbed the suspect’s gun when he dropped it. After the suspect and the friend of the homeowner separated, the homeowner opened fire on the suspect, striking him 4-5 times.

The suspect was declared dead at the scene.

Police believe there were two other suspects involved in the incident, but believe they ran off before entering the home after seeing how bad their accomplice was fairing.

According to MyNews13,

“We believe we’re looking for at least two people, persons of interest we may have information about what happened in this household,” said Detective Eric Debose from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Castle said there were four people inside the home before the break in.

He claims he doesn’t know why anyone would rob him.

“I don’t know,” Castle said. “We were doing music and stuff, maybe people think I got something, I don’t know.”

This is the 101st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Florida and the 1,082nd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
