DAVENPORT - She heard the sound of her bedroom window breaking. Then she saw a masked intruder pushing through the open window.I guess they figured no one was home.
Yahaira Cintron-Rivera woke up her husband, Jose Luis Oyola-Aponte, who armed himself with a handgun. As the masked man and a second suspect pushed the curtain open, Oyola-Aponte shot the masked intruder in the head and the other suspect in the abdomen just before noon Tuesday, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he didn't know whether the teenagers were armed.In addition to the 2 who got shot, 2 more got arrested.
"You have the right to be safe and secure in your home," Judd said. "And if somebody chooses to break into your home, wearing a mask, you can defend yourself."
Self-defense is a human right.
