(Phoenix, AZ) – In an extremely violent home invasion attempt, police in Phoenix report that two suspects broke into a home near 35th Ave. and Bethany Home Rd. armed with a handgun and machete.
The homeowner confronted the pair, who opened fire on him, prompting the homeowner to return fire with his own firearm. After a brief firefight, the pair retreated and fled in their vehicle.
Authorities located the vehicle nearby and found one suspect dead inside. That suspect has been identified as 38-yr-old Leandro Torres Jr. The other suspect remains at large and unidentified.
While the investigation is ongoing, charges are not expected against the homeowner, especially considering that Arizona is a Stand-Your-Ground law state.
