Armed 70-Year-Old Turns Tables, Kills 18-Year-Old Robbery Suspect

An armed 70-year-old Orange County, Florida, homeowner opened fire on two 18-year-old armed robbery suspects Wednesday, killing one. The homeowner was also shot and wounded during the confrontation. According to WFTV, Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jeff Williamson said, “We believe their intent was to commit an armed burglary of the residence. Unbeknownst to them, the resident of the home was inside.” Moreover, the resident, 70-year-old Juan Jose Carraballo, was armed. Carraballo exchanged gun with Gerald Anderson, killing him on the scene and causing the second suspect, Luismil Hernandez, to flee through the rear of the home. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Carraballo’s wife came home from work shortly thereafter to find him “crawling on the ground.” He was bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds but told his wife, “[I] shot one of them.” Carraballo was rushed to the hospital for surgery and emerged in stable condition. Hernandez was arrested Friday and charged with “armed burglary and first-degree felony murder.” He is being held without bond.

Good for Mr. Carraballo for standing his ground against these maggots!  We wish him a speedy recovery!
