The neighbor, Pam Zeck stated, “I just can’t imagine how scared and freaked out they must have been. There have been minor break-ins and things like that since I’ve lived here, but never anything like this.”

Just one more reason to have a firearm in your home. The homeowner also has a concealed carry permit as well.

“It was terrifying for this family. There’s a small child there as well,” said sheriff’s office spokesperson Kaitlyn Perez.

Deputies said Oliver broke in through a window and may have been living there for days.

“It’s possible, since we had such a cold weekend, that he was looking for a warm place to stay. We talked to his family members. He wasn’t always staying at home. He was traveling around,” said Perez.

Deputies said Oliver had just been released from prison. He had served a 10-year sentence for robbery with a firearm and carjacking. He was out on probation from the Miami-Dade area.

“He is a felony offender. He has an extensive criminal history. Unfortunately he was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” Perez offered.

Apparently for Oliver, he chose the wrong house and the wrong family to target.

 

The homeowner was right in this situation though. He felt threatened in his own home by an intruder. He simply shot in self defense.

The homeowner does not face any charges at this time.
