Police say three men broke into a couple's residence with baseball
bats and a gun in search of prescription drugs, but all they left
with was a lesson from an armed citizen. Two of the men allegedly
ordered the couple and their visiting family members to the floor
while a third suspect stole the medications. Meanwhile, a family
member in another room heard the commotion and armed himself with a
firearm. He entered the room and fired several shots at the
intruder who was holding the victim's relatives at gunpoint,
hitting him once in the torso. Two men fled in a car and were
apprehended by police. The wounded man was found collapsed in the
street. The trio faces charges of home invasion, robbery and
kidnapping. "They were very threatening to the family," said St.
Johns County Sheriff David Shoar. "[The man who was shot] had the
gun to the wife's head."
