Suspect Shot During Apparent Home Invasion Near Nine Mile Road

February 24, 2020

Gunfire was exchanged and a suspect was shot during an apparent attempted home invasion just north of Nine Mile Road Monday afternoon.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shots fired call on Sunnehanna Boulevard shortly after 2 p.m.

It appeared one of the suspects was shot during the gunfire, according Major Andrew Hobbs of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. That suspect was driven by someone to a local hospital and dropped off.

“Not everyone at the residence is being completely forthcoming at this time,” Hobb said as the ECSO continued their investigation into exactly what happened. A second suspect was believed to have fled, but no description was provided by the resident.

The condition of the person who was shot was not available. Additional details will be posted as they are released.

    “ownership of guns in that city is banned/forbidden.”
    ownership of firearms by convicted felons – forbidden.
    ownership of crack – forbidden.
    ownership of meth – forbidden.
    should i continue?

    @Sherry Ewy—New York has a “castle doctrine”. Sorry, but that doesn’t have a real meaning for the residents of the very large population of New York City. Other than law enforcement, business owners & a very few others, ownership of guns in that city is banned/forbidden.

    I dont know how to take some of these comments… Just let it be known. I will not hesitate to shoot and ask questions later. The lives living in this house is much more precious to me then a low life thug trying to take something that doesn’t belong to them. Just saying.

    Just think, an 18-20 adult in the state of Florida can no longer legally purchase a firearm to protect themselves and family from crimes such as Home Invasion.
    Elections matter.

    Looks like some range time is called for. The perp should have never seen the sun rise again.

    New York has a “castle doctrine” allowing you to murder intruders with your gun in your home. I’m not sure why you’d think they wouldn’t? But then again, nobody has ever, to my knowledge, ever suggested that we can’t defend our own homes. Ever. Nobody has ever suggested I relinquish my gun, or not use my gun if I needed to. This is not a second amendment issue

    yeah, i love the 2nd Amendment, too. you know, JTV, there are places where u could move like NYC that don’t allow gun ownership, i’m sure the crime rate is way lower there. :)

    the people that want guns banned have probably never been robbed or home invaded.

    @ JTV, I hope you’re being serious saying this because the victim in this crime absolutely defended his property with a gun he owned due to his 2nd amendment right to own said firearm. Had he not had it it may have been out his property and/or his life. I think it’s awesome that he winged the would-be robber and it’d be even better if he did more damage. Too bad to old ain’ see’d nuffin’ way of doing business kicked in. Nothing will improve with this kind of stuff as long as witnesses continue to have blind spells of convenience.

    Sound just like Chicago…..

    Residents not completely forthcoming? Maybe embarrassed to have it known that the suspects were there to try stealing their supply of Ex Lax & toilet paper?
