'He was defending himself and his family': Homeowner shoots, kills suspected

6 Likes

Good shoot. The decedent decided upon the actions that resulted in his death, unfortunately, that required the homeowner to defend himself and family. From the story:

Fleet kicked in the door of the family’s home and was met by the homeowner armed with a gun, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said. Fleet also was armed and was fired upon but returned a round of gunfire before exiting.

Fleet then “charges” into the house, Nocco said, forcing the homeowner to shoot and kill him.

“He was defending himself and his family,” Nocco said. "Any loss of life is tragic, but the victim was utilizing his Second Amendment rights to protect himself and his family from the fear of Ronald who was carrying a gun, kicking in a door, trying to harm them.

“I can’t imagine the fear that they were going through, but I’m very happy the fact that he was able to defend himself and his actions.”
