Three armed burglars entered a South Florida apartment Thursday night and pistol-whipped the resident inside. When the man rose to confront his attackers, he was bloody, battered — and armed with an assault rifle.
“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,” Davie police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle told the NBC affiliate in Miami.
One suspect was shot and killed, and the other two are on the run.
The resident was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries. He was released after being questioned by police.
