Sheriff Chip Simmons of Escambia County, Florida, said the man who pulled out a “AK-47-style gun” and fired at supposed intruders on July 7 will “absolutely not” be charged.
According to FOX News, three suspects, one of them was armed, allegedly broke into a house in Escambia County.
The homeowner reached for a handgun but dropped it, running into a different room to get a “AK-47-style” weapon. The three suspects ran away after he started shooting with it.
Antonio DeWayne Dean Jr., age 18, and Da’Torrance Leanders Hackworth, age 20, were both named as suspects.
Dean is still at large, according to Simmons, who said on Facebook that Hackworth was detained “for use/display of a firearm during a felony, possession of a firearm by a felon, larceny, grand theft of a firearm, and robbery/home invasion with a firearm.”
When the third person went to the hospital for treatment of a head injuries caused by a bullet, law authorities took notice.
According to Simmons, who was quoted by OX News, “We get a report of a third individual that had a wound to the head not long after [the home invasion]. The stories he’s giving us as to how he got shot in the head are inconsistent at best. In short, we don’t believe him. So what we’re looking at is to determine whether this is the third person that was involved.”
