Two home invasion suspects are on the run and a third was fatally shot by a South Florida resident who fought back against the armed intruders with an AK-47 Thursday night, police said.
The incident happened at a home on the 6100 block of Southwest 48th Street, Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.
Three armed men entered the apartment and pistol-whipped the resident inside, police said. He then confronted the suspects.
“The resident of the apartment had possession of an AK-47 and after he received this beating he was able to get possession or control of that, and started shooting at these suspects as they were fleeing,” Engle said.
He received significant injuries but was later released from a hospital, Engle said.
