ORLANDO, FLORIDA – A homeowner armed himself after it was apparent someone was in his home where his wife and three children were sleeping.

The homeowner opened fire on the suspect after confronting him inside the home. The suspect fled and managed to get away, but there is a chance he was hit by the homeowner’s rounds.

According to WESH,

The homeowner likely won’t face charges.

“He’s in his home. He’s defending his family, so at this point, no,” said Lourdes Clayton, with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Police believe a second suspect may have been driving a waiting car outside of the home.

None of the family members were injured in the incident.

This is the 114th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state Florida and the 1,245th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
