Here’s more from News4JAX:
The tables were turned on three armed robbers during a frightening break-in at a Neptune Beach apartment, as the person inside shot at the intruders, according to police.
Video from a Ring spotlight camera shows the confrontation at the Park Place Apartments on 3rd Street next to Jarboe Park. It happened at 5:51 p.m. Tuesday.
Neptune Beach police confirmed one man was shot in the chest and is at a hospital while the other two are still on the run.
In the video, three young men can be seen walking up the stairs to a second floor balcony. One uses his body to push in the door, while another puts on gloves. They are inside for roughly eight seconds when at least five gunshots can be heard.
Police told News4Jax the lone resident inside, an adult male, grabbed a gun and fired.
Moments later, the three other men run out of the front door. One of them jumps off the second floor balcony and onto the sidewalk below.
Surveillance images from a nearby parking lot show the men leaving in two getaway cars, a red Kia and a silver Pontiac. Police released the pictures of the cars and suspects hours after the shooting, asking for tips.
A short time after the break-in, one of the men showed up at an emergency room with a gunshot wound in the chest, according to Commander Mike Key with the Neptune Beach Police Department.
Wednesday afternoon, the lead detective on the case said investigators were following several leads in hopes of tracking down the two men who got away.
This man had a gun that Alyssa Milano didn’t want him to have and it likely saved his life from whatever these three thugs were going to do upon finding him in the home. Strike another home as defended using the second amendment.
