FL: Boyfriend Shoots Burglary Suspect
MIAMI (WSVN) - A homeowner turned the tables on the man who was trying to break into his Miami home when, police said, he shot the intruder, sending him to the hospital, Tuesday morning.
Miami Police said the invasion attempt happened at 6:30 a.m., in the area of Buena Vista East, near Northeast 42nd Street off North Miami Avenue.
“The City of Miami received a call from a female saying that there was an attempted burglary at her home and that her boyfriend had apparently shot the offender,” said Miami Police Officer Yelitza Cedano.
Investigators said the perpetrator had a pair of bolt cutters and was trying to break into the residence. “They were asleep, and they were woken by the alarm,” said Cedano. “Apparently, the alarm went off once. They thought it was something routine.”
