|Incident at a Glance|
|Gun(s) Used:||.40, Handgun, Semiauto||Location:||Home|
|# of Suspects:||2||Shots Fired:||Multiple|
A visitor to a home in Land O’Lakes, FL was forced to use his .40 caliber handgun to defend himself and others late last week.
Two suspected home invaders burst into a residence carrying what appeared to be real guns, but were in fact fakes. However, the visitor, armed with a real gun, had no way of knowing that, so, he drew and opened fire.
Both suspects were hit multiple times, with one suspect possibly being hit as many as five times.
Both suspects tried to flee once the shooting started, but collapsed in front of the home according to TampaBay.com.
A nurse driving by stopped to treat the wounded suspected criminals.
Both men are described as being in serious condition at an area hospital.
