Fla. officers report double trouble with firearms
ORLANDO, Fla. — Crime pushed Orlando a little closer to the OK Corral over the weekend with twice the typical number of guns seized, stolen or fired.
At least two victims fought back, including a Pine Hills resident who opened fire with an assault rifle on an armed burglar, reports show. Miguel Angel Perez told police he fired three times at the burglar about 11 p.m. Friday to protect his children and himself.
"He was certain if the suspect were able to get his gun, he would have been shot," an officer wrote.
