After being beaten and pistol-whipped by 3 armed men who broke into his apartment, the resident of the apartment was able to grab his AK-47 and defend his life against a home invasion.
According to NBC Miami,
Two home invasion suspects are on the run and a third was shot and killed by a Davie resident Thursday night, police said.
The incident happened at a home on the 6100 block of Southwest 48th Street, Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.
Three armed men entered the apartment and pistol-whipped the resident inside, police said. He then confronted the suspects.
“The resident of the apartment had possession of an AK-47 and after he received this beating he was able to get possession or control of that, and started shooting at these suspects as they were fleeing,” Engle said.
He received significant injuries but was later released from a hospital, Engle said.
The shooter was also taken in for questioning but has since been released. He is cooperating with detectives, Engle said.
Police have not released the identities of the four men involved, but said they knew each other.
Authorities ask anyone with information about the incident to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
