Steven Robey and his daughter, Sarina, were staying at a North Fort
Myers, Fla., hotel while house hunting. Robey called the front desk
for room service one morning, and soon there was a knock at his
door. He opened the door expecting to see coffee and doughnuts but
was instead greeted by two strange men demanding money. When Robey
refused their demands, the men forced their way into the hotel
room. One man pulled a gun and forced Robey onto a bed while the
other intruder grabbed Sarina and began to drag her into the
bathroom. Reacting quickly, Robey reached under his pillow and
pulled out a .45-cal. pistol. He fired several times at the man
holding him and then turned and fired several shots at the man who
held his daughter, emptying his gun. Both suspects sustained
several gunshot wounds and one died at the scene. Lee County
Sheriff's Capt. Richard Chard said the investigation shows Robey
was defending himself. "A gun was pointed at his head, and a man
was taking his daughter into the bathroom," Chard said. "I feel I
would have responded the same way."
