SUMMERFIELD, FL —It’s every homeowner’s worst nightmare.
A Florida man is recovering in a hospital after an armed robbery at his home left two of the four thugs dead, and him with a gunshot wound to the stomach.
Deputies got the call at 8:21 p.m. Wednesday and went to the home at 14999 SE 32nd Court Road in response to a report of shots fired.
An unidentified 61-year-old man had home alone when he heard a knock and saw the face of a man peering through the glass on his front door.
He asked what his business was, and then man claimed to have car trouble.
The homeowner said he couldn’t help as he was disabled, and the man left.
The homeowner thought that was the end of the story and went to bed.
An hour later they came back armed with guns and crashed their way into his home.
The homeowner awoke to the noise of his front door being battered in and grabbed the AR-15 beside his bed.
Then he saw two masked men coming at him in the dark of his bedroom and gunfire was exchanged.
Police say that Nigel Doyle, 22 and Keith Jackson Jr, 21, were killed.
Detectives said Jackson was wearing a “Jason” mask on top of his head, gloves on both hands, jeans and a black shirt.
Two other suspects, Robert John Hamilton, 19 and Seth Rodriguez, 22, escaped the home but were located by police despite wearing dark clothing and hiding in tall grass.
When police arrived at the home, they found the two shot thugs on the floor with semi-auto pistols near their bodies.
Jackson was dead, and Doyle was transported to a hospital, where he later died.
The disabled homeowner was still in his bedroom, with his AR-15 across his legs and bleeding from a gunshot wound in the stomach.
Rodriguez is facing charges of murder and home invasion robbery with a firearm.
Hamilton is facing home invasion robbery with a firearm.
The unidentified homeowner is still recovering in the hospital but is in stable condition.
No charges will be filed against the homeowner, according to police, as he owned his guns legally and was acting in self-defense.
The next time you hear some lefty telling you that AR-15s aren’t for self-defense or they only belong in the military, send them this story!
