JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville man and woman are in stable condition after a shootout with an intruder that broke into their home Friday morning. Police say the suspect, 21-year-old Trevel Yates, was killed during the assault.

The pair had just woken up when they heard a loud noise of someone breaking in the back door, Sgt. Michael Paul reported. The 50-year-old man fought with Yates and was hit several times with a blunt object. The man retrieved a firearm and exchanged gunfire with the suspect. The 60-year-old woman also got a gun and shot at the suspect.
A child in the home was unharmed.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating the death and the State Attorney's Office is reviewing the case.


Update; He was such a good boy!

Exchanged gunfire meant they both had guns, right? (Not that it makes any difference here) But wondering why the intruder hit him first without the gun? Maybe he was one of these measured/graduated response guys.....

Maybe the intruder didn't have a gun, but used one of the homeowners.
