‘Hero’ neighbor shoots, kills domestic violence suspect in Florida, deputies say

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — A Pasco County, Florida, neighbor is hailed as a hero after deputies say he shot and killed an armed domestic violence suspect and helped free the victim’s children from a dangerous scene.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call in the Trinity area a little before 7 p.m. Wednesday night. According to Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, the incident stemmed from a domestic violence attack.

Nocco said the domestic violence victim was inside the home, screaming for help. A neighbor who was mowing his lawn, heard the victim’s cries and ran over to help.

As the victim was crying for help, she started moving a group of young children, who Nocco described as “elementary school children,” to the home’s second-story window. The neighbor helped lower the children to safety, Nocco said.

As the neighbor tried to deescalate the situation, the domestic violence suspect took out a gun and pointed at the neighbor.

The suspect opened fire but the neighbor was able to defend himself. The neighbor then shot the suspect, killing him on scene, Nocco said.

    Another decent score for the good guys. Here’s to a very painful recovery for #3. We’ll hear from him again…one day.

    All God’s chil’ren could use an MP5… or two! A preferred weapon for the Rainbow 6 Troops.

    Sometimes, I think it might be better to just neuter some of these jerks with a bullet.

    But that’s just me. 🙂

    I like that MP 5
    Even if it is 1970’s technology with no last round bolt hold open or any good way to mount a modern red dot on it.
    I had a bump trigger on a comparable modern gun, a CZ Scorpion. Loved it!
    Then Florida banned all rate increasing devices.
