Resident Shoots At Home Invasion Suspects

October 20, 2013

Authorities in Alabama and Florida are on the lookup for two home invasion suspects that fled after the resident opened fire at them Sunday afternoon.

The incident happened about 2 p.m. on North Pineview Drive off Foshee Road and Highway 113 north of Flomaton.

The victim was home alone when a white male and white female, apparently thinking no one was home, forced their way into a home in the 300 block of North Pineview.

“The homeowner greeted them with a firearm,” said Escambia County (Ala.) Chief Deputy Mike Lambert. “He fired multiple rounds at the suspects and their vehicle. It is not known at this time if he hit the suspects.”

The suspects fled at high rate of speed in a white, possible Chevrolet, pickup truck with oa freezer on the back. Lambert said several other residents of the area reported seeing the couple in the area Saturday claiming that they were selling meat.

The homeowner was not injured in the incident.

Anyone with any information on possible suspects is asked to call the Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff’s Office or 911.

    Last year we had 3 people show up at our house, two were in bed of truck, and a woman was in cab. My dogs started barking like crazy, and I stepped onto the porch (my 4 kids inside, and my husband at work), a guy got out of truck and tried to sell me some steaks. I told him we didn’t eat them, and didn’t need them. The one guy kept hitting on me, and I told him I would go get my husband, and they left!!! Very scary!!!!! My husband and I are getting our own guns. So sad it’s come to that!!!

    Freezer on the back? Sounds like those cheap steak peddlers that go door to door?

    Now THIS is what the “Stand Your Ground” law is all about! No running into a room trying to lock the door and call for help, but defend your family and property!

    Like Josh Thompson says…”our houses are protected by the good lord and a gun and you might meet them both if you come round here unwelcome son.”

    WTG! Chalk one up for the homeowners!!!!! Hopefully, those two intruders had a come to Jesus moment after that encounter and will change their ways before one of them ends up in the coroners office. We have a warning posted at our front and back doors, if criminals are dumb enough to enter anyway, it will be them going to thre ER, not one of us.

    Remember, sometimes that door is for your protection, Mr. & Ms Intruder.
