Three armed men allegedly barged through the unlocked front door of
a home occupied by five men and one woman, most of them students.
Police say the residents fled in multiple directions as the suspects
raided the home. One of the victims grabbed a semi-automatic AK-47
and hid in a closet. He heard two shots fired somewhere in the home
and the next thing he knew one of the intruders was trying to force
his way into the closet with a handgun. The victim fired three
rounds, killing the gunman. "He did everything possible to avoid a
physical confrontation. The last thing he wanted to do was kill
somebody," said Orlando Deputy Sheriff Carlos Padilla, who didn't
know why the house was targeted. "Deep down in his heart, he felt
his friends were getting killed?'
