When Florida State Sen. Hayward Davis walked into his Lake
Placid home and saw his wife and two small children sitting on the
couch, he knew something was wrong. Just then he saw an armed
intruder holding a gun on his family. Mrs. Davis was forced to tie
up her husband with neckties. The gunman then pushed the Senator
into one closet and the two children into another, and forced Mrs.
Davis to drive away with him in the family car. Davis, freeing
himself, ran into the garage and got a shotgun. The gunman and
Mrs. Davis returned. When the intruder found that Sen. Davis was
not in the closet, he grabbed Mrs. Davis and told her to tell her
husband to come out. When the man started to choke Mrs. Davis, Sen.
Davis fired a shot at him. The thug fired two shots from his pistol
and Sen. Davis fired a second shot which fatally wounded the man who
had terrorized his family. It was later learned that the man was an
escapee from a Florida prison.
