FL: More Details on Tampa Shooting of Intruder
Solomon grabbed his gun, went downstairs and found a man in the kitchen. He told officers he was "in fear for his life," and then fired multiple gunshots at the intruder, according to police.
The intruder was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity was not released Tuesday by police, who said they were trying to find his next of kin. The police released no other details about the incident.
"It does make you want to be prepared," said Chris Mercer, a friend of Solomon's. "I'm in awe."
