Another happy ending
A home intrusion suspect was shot dead in Pinecrest, Florida, on Monday after breaking into the home of a federal agent who was able to quickly grab her gun.
ABC News reports that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agent, 55-year-old Maria Otero, was sleeping when “28-year-old Robert Young III smashed in a glass sliding door” around 1:30 a.m.
According to Local 10 News, Otero “fired several shots” at Young, killing him on the scene. Police did not report how many times Young was shot.
CBP confirmed that Otero used her government-issued sidearm, a “.40 caliber Smith & Wesson.”
Although Otero’s neighbors were surprised at the intrusion, they also admitted to worrying that the location of the neighborhood made such an incident likely. One neighbor said, “(I was) a bit surprised, a bit shocked, but you know, it’s a very quiet neighborhood around here, Well, it is Miami, so it can happen, but not in this neighborhood. This tends to happen in other neighborhoods. But this area has scared me always a bit because we’re so close to U.S. 1, so it’s a quick getaway.”
Otero is on administrative leave pending completion of an investigation into the incident.

Love happy endings like this.
Hopefully the mag was emptied into the killified perpetrator. If their issue ammo is Federal HST, that .40 S&W had to hurt like a muthuh! Happy ending.....

I can hear the family now complain of injustice, that multiple shots were not necessary.

Thankfully he will not do that again and we do not have to pay for his 3 hots and a cot.

Well, she shot him several times, so...
Great to hear the outcome, and that the gene pool was made just a tiny bit better.

we should all pitch in and buy her a lifetime supply of whatever beer she wants - she saved us a ton of money...

And the late but unlamented Robert?
What are his priors?
What was the intent with this?
Burglary? Or sexual assault?
On parole / probation?

Pincrest neighborhood is a few miles north of me and a very well-to-do area, I'm not surprised at attempted robbery there, but certainly not as surprised as the perp!

1. I wonder what Robert Young I and Robert Young II were like?
2. Is there a Robert Young IV preparing to follow in poppa’s footsteps?
Yeah, well sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
No "making sure" going on there. The woman is an officer of the law. I'll bet she quit shooting the instant she perceived that the threat ended.
Let's all meet the late Robert Young III:
(Robert Young III was shot and killed inside the Florida home of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent Maria Otero, Feb. 12, 2018.)
He was no stranger to the Florida Criminal Justice System.
