You’re going to have a bad day if you’re a home invader and you’re facing a single armed citizen. You’re probably going to have a terrible day if you’re facing an entire armed family.
According to WFLA, that’s exactly what happened to one unlucky home invader in Winter Haven, FL,
According to WHPD, the suspect was a complete stranger to the family who lived in the house. Police said, the homeowner Luis F. Pena, 54, his wife Bacenbina A. Pena, 53, and their son Luis A. Pena, 27, were all home when they heard a noise early Monday morning. A forth person, Lilliana E. Pena, 20, was also inside of the home, but did not witness the incident.
Luis A. Pena went to check on that and found somebody rattling the french doors leading off a back porch area. He pulled out a gun and fired a shot trying to scare off the intruder but the burglar didn’t stop.
The young man went back to the kitchen where his mother and father were, both armed. Police say Large continued to charge at the residents and the three of them all shot at the intruder when they saw him.
The suspect was hit once in the torso during the barrage of gunfire and died from his injuries.
It’s not currently known who fired the lethal shot. It seems that the family had a plan on what to do during just such a situation and thus were able to effectively and quickly neutralize the threat while avoiding any sort of friendly fire situation.
