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 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.
