A suspect was shot while the other got away in a Jacksonville, Florida attempted home invasion that occurred this past Monday on March 12. Channel 4 Jax News published a story about the incident on their site.
At about 11:30 am on Monday morning, two suspects attempted to invade a home located on Thumper Street. The residence is right off Jammes road. The suspects, armed with a gun, knocked on the resident’s door. After the resident opened the door, the suspects forced their way into the residence.
The victim retrieved his firearm. He shot one of the suspects while the other suspect fled. Matthew Austin, a nearby citizen, told Jax News that he stumbled upon the shot suspect at an intersection. Austin said, “He was pretty incoherent. The best I got was his name, maybe his age. I think he was born in ’01 which is like 17, 18. He said some stuff, but I’ll leave that to the cops because I don’t want to get involved.”
Jacksonville Police have described the second suspect as wearing a hood and a scarf over his face. Police had no other details because the investigation had just begun.
Jacksonville Sherriff’s Office Assistant Chief Mike Johnson said that the attempted daytime robbery wasn’t an anomaly. Johnson said, “It was very brazen, but, you know, we have daytime burglaries all the time.”
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
