When one family member in this home in Florida saw an intruder trying to break-in through the back door at least 3 of the family members armed themselves in defense of their home.
It was 7:00 am when one of the members of the Pena family heard the sound of the intruder trying to break into their Florida home in Winter Haven.
After the 3 family members grabbed their guns one of them then fired a warning shot to try to scare off the intruder, but the 40-year-old male continued to gain entry to the home.
That’s when at least 2 of the armed Pena family members opened fire on the intruder in the kitchen, killing him on the scene.
The identity of the intruder has not been released yet since his family will have to be notified of what happened, but police are saying that he has a previous arrest record including cases of domestic violence.
Before the anti-gunners jump all over Florida’s Stand Your Ground laws it should be pointed out that this had nothing to do with Stand Your Ground and everything to do with self-defense.
The neighbors were supportive of the Pena family’s actions because they don’t want their own homes being broken into by uninvited intruders who have ill intentions.
