Wednesday morning feel good stories

From Lake Worth, Florida;

The homeowner said he saw [Christopher] Mouassite holding a flashlight on the second floor of his home. He then shot Mouassite to “defend himself as well as his wife and daughter,” a deputy wrote in the report.

When deputies arrived, the homeowner was chasing Mouassite behind his home, according to a sheriff’s office report. Deputies arrested Mouassite when spontaneously he said “It’s all a mistake, I went into the wrong house,” a deputy wrote.

Mouassite had a gunshot wound to his right arm and was taken to JFK Medical Center for treatment. He later was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and is being held on $30,000 bond.

Deputies said in the report the homeowner was in well-founded fear that Mouassite was inside his home to commit a crime or hurt his family.

Court records show Mouassite was out on bond from a March arrest on drug-related charges.

From Altamonte Springs, Florida;

The victim said she was on her way to her car just before the intrusion, but she turned around when she noticed that she had left her phone at home. She said her 13-year-old son and a female relative were the only ones in the house at the time.

Afraid for her safety, the unarmed victim said she wrestled with one of the men until he dropped the firearm. They eventually ran out of the house, with one firing shots, but missing on his way out. No injuries were reported.

“I noticed that the guy started getting nervous — his fingers getting crazy on the trigger. And I just disarmed it. I just completely took out the magazine from the AK,” the woman said. “They just didn’t know I was going to fight back. That’s what they didn’t know.”

Police in Altamonte Springs, located about 10 miles north of Orlando, arrested Angel Delgado Santiago, 30, and Jorge Montanez, 17, on robbery charges in connection with the invasion, according to WFTV.

From Miami, Florida;

Authorities say a Florida man was fatally shot while trying to rob three people.

The Miami Herald reports that the shooting occurred Saturday night.

Miami police say 24-year-old Francisco Martinez Jr. managed to drive about two blocks away from the scene of the confrontation before losing control and ending up in a yard.

Miami Fire Rescue took Martinez to a nearby trauma center, where he was eventually pronounced dead.

From Springdale, Arkansas because Florida can’t get all of the attention;

Police arrived to find a 21-year-old lying on the sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds, according to the release. The man was transported to Northwest Medical Center, where he died from his injuries, authorities said.

The person who initially called police about a burglary said he heard someone beating on the door of his apartment and didn’t get an answer when he asked who was there. A male and female then kicked in the door and entered the home, prompting the resident to fire a handgun he was armed with, the release states.

The male collapsed on the sidewalk, while the female reportedly fled in a silver passenger car.

    Just a tip, if someone is banging on your door with the intent to break in, grab the shotgun, not the pistol. You’re more likely to clear the fatal funnel with multiple 00 sized projectiles fired with each trigger pull than with one 9mm projectile.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Still have to aim- shot pattern at living room ranges is about the size of your hand, depending barrel length, choke and shot type.

    • SaraSnipe says:

      Both valid points, although I keep a P-250 in full size 45 configuration at my bedside (it has awesome night sights), I feel a shot gun loaded with 4 shot to 00 would deliver more effective fire upon the intruder. Although all shots should be well placed, the effect of a shotgun blast in close proximity allows some margin for error and hopefully less overpenetration.

  2. 5JC says:

    I’d probably grab an AR. Multiple .300BO rounds will clear the funnel pretty cleanly as well. The accurate rate of fire with the light recoiling round is much faster than with a shotgun or pistol. Terminal effects are likely to be much better than the pistol as well, not to mention saving my hearing.

    But who am I kidding? No home invader is coming to my place.

    “It’s all a mistake, I went into the wrong house,” Yes. You certainly did.

  4. Tallywhagger says:

    “…fled in a silver passenger car.”

    Well alright then! That narrows is it down silver, or maybe gray, eliminates Freight Liners, motorcycles, bicycles and pumpkins.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    “It was like a movie,” she said.

    Uh, no, not exactly, because in movies, it’s all CGI’d effects for the guns firing plus the sound FX department providing the noise.

    But she somehow dropped a magazine out of the AK-47. Does that mean she has one herself?

    Sister Mary Grace awards a thump on the back of the head to the reporter for completely lacking clarity about this incident, and lack of interviewing skills.

    Moving on…. Mother Nature dropped the indoor temperature overnight in my castle to 69F, which means I had to fire up the kitchen ovens to make bread for the knights and ladies, and also to get warm. Mother Nature is not making me happy these days. Rain by the truckload and cold air too boot. I’ll go chop wood now.

    Saturday is Armed Forces Day (which was news to me); there will be a gathering of submariners at a memorial to the submariners lost in World War II in the mountains of NC, in Yancey County, hard by the Tennessee border. See https://www.wral.com/lifestyles/travel/video/17556555/.

      CCO; If that Knucklehead news guy during WW2 didn’t print the article about how deep a Sub can go, the Navy wouldn’t have lost all those Subs that were sunk by the Japanese. Loose lips sink ships and that’s exactly what happened.

    • OC says:

      CCO, I wasn’t aware that any submariners were lost in the mountains of NC …..
      Sorry, the devil made me do it. 😉

    Looks like I’ll stay down in West Delray and stay away from Flanagans up on N 10 Ave Lake Worth and Buds Chicken on Lake Worth Road.

  8. Docduracoat says:

    Troys Barbecue down here in Boynton Beach is right on Federal Highway
    It’s perfectly safe to go there, even at night.
    I carry my gun everywhere but I have never felt threatened there.
    Look for the only ofwg there
