The father, who Channel 2’s Steve Gehlbach confirmed is the pastor of a Baptist church in Bartow County, then grabbed his gun.

Deputies said he shot Simmons in the head as he was coming in the house.

A neighbor, Bill Kennedy, told Gehlbach the Beck family heard the intruder breaking into their basement window.

“Come to the door and she was screaming, ‘Invader in the house!’ and her two kids were still in there asleep,” Kennedy said.

The suspect has been identified as 19-year-old Donavan Simmons. He was rushed to the hospital and now faces charges.

Beck does not face any charges.

“I think he did the right thing, protect his family,” Kennedy said.
