If the van is a-rockin’ riddled with bullet holes, don’t come a-knockin’…
Needless to say, a certain yet-to-be-identified Florida man who started the day with ill intent in his heart, and an AK-47 in his mitts, finished the day not quite like he hoped.
Specifically, this goofus finished the day on a slab at the county morgue.
As it turns out, a Miami resident who originally hails from Kingston, Jamaica, was threatened by the same AK toting, yet-to-be-identified Florida man, who ended up with a chest cavity filled with pistol caliber bullets for his trouble.
Reported by WBFS-TV CBS affiliate of Miami, Florida, Donovan Stewart, 60, emptied his Glock in a man who sought to:
- Break into his van.
- Rob him of his jewelry.
- Threatened to shoot Stewart in his face.
- Also had the chance of harming Stewart’s paramour as well as his 11-yr-old son.
Also cited by CBS4 reporter Peter D’Oench (emphasis mine);
A 60-Year-old Miami man said he was forced to shoot and kill a gunman who had broken in to his van early Monday morning in an attempt to rob him of his jewelry.
“The guy I killed last night, he put an AK-47 to my damn face,” said Donovan Stewart.
Stewart told CBS4’S Peter D’Oench that he had to act quickly because he was worried about the safety of his 11-year-old son and girlfriend who were in the van with him. “I am from Kingstontown in Jamaica,” he said, “and I am not going to go out like a punk. So I emptied my Glock in his chest. This man tried to get in my van while I was sleeping and he was surprised to see what I did.”
“So I thought you are you going to kill me so now I have to act quickly because I am trained,” he said. “You know I have a security license, I have a G license and I have a state firearms license and a concealed weapons permit and I have a gun and I am a member of the NRA.”
“I am going to defend my life and those I love,” he said. “My family is innocent and just don’t put an AK-47 in my face. I will not allow that to happen. This guy also hijacked a woman in a van and was found with her car key. He robbed another woman at gunpoint.”
“You want to come looking for trouble,” he said. “Come to me. Come to me. I wouldn’t do anything like this to anybody and they picked the wrong person in this case.
Miami Police Officer Mike Vega said while this appears to be a case of self-defense the investigation is still open.
