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

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
