Late in the morning, an armed robber entered the back door of an apartment in Lauderhill, Fla. Once inside, the robber began looting the house, grabbing a computer and a DVD player. The resident of the apartment was in the bedroom during the robbery and called out to the person in his home, thinking it could be an acquaintance. When the intruder did not respond, the resident retrieved his shotgun and confronted the robber. Police Captain Rick Rocco described what happened next: “When he came out he saw that the suspect had a 9mm in his hand, so he fired the shotgun. He missed, and the suspect bailed out back.”
After the armed robber fled, the police conducted an exhaustive search, but the armed criminal managed to elude capture.
