ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - Police in Florida say a 70-year-old man fatally shot an intruder during a home invasion.
Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Jeff Williamson said in a news release that Juan Jose Caraballo heard someone trying to break into his house about 5 p.m. Wednesday.
He grabbed his gun and shot at the intruders. Williamson says one was hit and killed. The other ran out the back door of the home near Orlando.
Caraballo’s wife and a delivery driver who was in the neighborhood both called 911.
Williamson says that Caraballo also was struck by a bullet and underwent surgery. There was no update on his condition.
The dead man’s name hasn’t been released.
An investigation continues.
