A home invasion in Florida took a strange turn after the resident went after the suspects with an AK-47.

According to NBC Miami6, one home invasion suspect was fatally shot and two others are on the run from authorities after a Davie, Florida resident fired his AK-47 at his attackers last Thursday.

Three armed men allegedly entered the victim’s apartment and pistol-whipped the resident inside. Then the resident got a hold of his AK-47.

“The resident of the apartment had possession of an AK-47 and after he received this beating he was able to get possession or control of that, and started shooting at these suspects as they were fleeing,” Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

The shooter was taken in for questioning but has since been released. He is cooperating with detectives, according to Engle.

Police believe all of the men involved in the incident knew each other.
