In an apparent home invasion gone wrong, suspected burglar Deandre Williams was fatally shot by his intended victim. Juan Carlos Garcia, his wife and their two small children had been sleeping when Garcia was awakened by an intruder. Arming himself with a pistol, Garcia went into the living room to investigate. There he encountered an armed man standing by the front door. When the intruder fired at Garcia, striking him in the arm, Garcia returned fire. Williams then ran outside. Garcia followed, and Williams, who was waiting for him, fired at Garcia, hitting him several times. Garcia dropped to the ground and fired one more shot, fatally wounding Williams.
