Dad shoots, kills armed intruder who broke into Sarasota home at 5:40 AM
. . . Deputies said the homeowner, Chris Bane, heard glass breaking at about 5:40 a.m. He grabbed his gun and went into the hallway, where he came face to face with Calvin Yoder.
"The burglar fired a shot and the homeowner returned fire, striking and killing the intruder," said Wendy Rose, a spokesperson for the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office. "Apparently the homeowner has been the victim of burglary recently so he was on alert, he was on edge, and as soon as he heard glass breaking he armed himself to protect himself and his 11-year-old child who was in the home."
Rose said Bane's home had been broken into as recently as Sunday, but deputies aren't sure if Yoder was involved.
Yoder, 22, has had several run-ins with the law; he'd been arrested at least five times and spent several months in prison. . . .
"[Bane and his son] were both uninjured," Rose said. "Clearly they're shaken up and speaking to investigators." . . .
