A Davie, Fla., man shot an intruder when the man jumped him
as he went out into his yard to investigate suspicious activity in
his barn. The homeowner told detectives that when motion-detecting
lights near his barn were activated about 2:20 a.m., he called 9-1-1
and then, leaving his wife and two small children in the house, went
outside with his 9 mm handgun to investigate. Davie police spokesman
Lt. Gary Killam said the homeowner reported the intruder had jumped
him and, in the ensuing struggle, the suspect was killed. Some of
the homeowner's property was recovered near the suspect's car at the
rear of the barn. The suspect, Peter Grimo, had at least 18 previous
burglary convictions and 14 grand theft convictions and had been
recently released from his fifth stay in state prison.
