“They were sleeping at the time. I believe two shots were fired,” said family attorney Michael Grieco. “They did not recognize this guy. They both have concealed weapons permits.”
Police haven’t named the would-be intruder. They said the 22-year-old man is in critical condition after being taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
“The subject arrived in a vehicle and began forcing his way into the residence when he was shot by the homeowner,” Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.
On Monday morning, three men broke into a Sunrise home at 4380 NW 103rd St. and were greeted by another resident with a gun. Before they were able to ransack the place, the resident, Warren Darlow, fired.
