Two robbers armed with pepper spray kicked in the front door, but one resident grabbed his gun when he heard the commotion from another room.
Police said the homeowner and intruder were not acquainted, but did not indicate a motive or say what the suspect was doing in the child’s room.
A spokeswoman with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said by the time the intruder got to the woman, he was completely naked.
The suspect was wanted for a bank robbery and had a lengthy criminal history spanning half a dozen states and included robbery, assault and gun charges.
Residents say there have been a number of break-ins over the last few months, but investigators aren’t sure yet if the deceased suspects were responsible.
The victim fired three shots, and Juteau cried, “Oh God!” before he ran out of the glass door he had broken. Police later used a trail of blood to find him.
Dejean-Jones’ girlfriend recently moved into a new apartment and when he returned after an argument, he accidentally went to the wrong floor.
The injured suspect, who has a prior felony conviction and is a registered sex offender, was on probation at the time of the home invasion.
She warned them that she was armed, but when they ignored her warning and advanced toward her, she unloaded, striking one and sending both fleeing.
The two remaining suspects now face murder charges for the death of their comrade, while the resident who pulled the trigger will not.
