Florida Homeowner Fires 17 Rounds, Hits Two in Defense Against Four Armed Intruders


DELAND, FL – A dramatic turn of events unfolded on Wednesday afternoon in DeLand, FL when a homeowner defended his residence against four armed intruders, shooting two of them. The incident occurred around 5:45 p.m. at a home located at 931 Clark Ave.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene following reports of gunfire during what appeared to be a premeditated home invasion. Initial investigations revealed that the suspects had prior knowledge of the homeowner due to previous narcotics transactions. This familiarity, however, did not spare them from the homeowner’s response when they attempted to rob him.

In a desperate bid to protect himself, the homeowner retrieved his firearm and discharged it 17 times. The barrage of bullets not only repelled the attackers but also struck their getaway vehicle, which was later found riddled with bullet holes in Daytona Beach during a felony traffic stop by the authorities.

Two of the suspects sustained gunshot wounds in the chaos and were later dropped off at a local hospital for medical treatment. The injured parties have been identified as Timothy Bourn, 22, of Holly Hill, and Marquis Williams, 19, of Daytona Beach. Meanwhile, the other two accomplices, Benjamin Warren, 20, of Daytona Beach, the driver of the bullet-damaged vehicle, and Jaiden Hunt, 20, of Holly Hill, were apprehended by law enforcement in close proximity to the crime scene.

All four suspects are currently held without bond at the Volusia County Branch Jail, facing serious charges of armed home invasion robbery. This case highlights the dangerous and unpredictable nature of home invasions and the potentially lethal consequences of such criminal endeavors.
