3 in custody in attempted home invasion
MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- Miramar Police have three subjects in custody after an attempted home invasion.
The occupants of the home located at 4381 SW 126 Ave. said they heard glass breaking and then gunshots, early Friday morning. The occupants, who do not own the home, returned fire and struck one of the subjects. That subject and another subject who suffered some type of injury were transported to the hospital.
The third subject was taken into custody not far from the scene. All three men are expected to face charges.
One woman who lives two doors down is shaken up by the crime scene. "When I heard or saw some of the things going on I was very alarmed and shocked that those are the things that happen in this neighborhood," said Tamia Jones. "I think it was targeted, just because it is a very quiet neighborhood, full of children, working families."
Another nearby neighbor said he is concerned about his family's security. "I'm concerned more for my wife because she gets scared when she is alone at the house," said Lino Medina.
The occupants of the home are being questioned by detectives.
One man who did not want to be identified said the owner of the home lives out of state. "We don't know them, the owner lives in Manhattan and they are renters. We know that there are lots of occupants in that house. It is a single-family house and there are a lot of people in that house," he said.
Investigators remain on the scene gathering evidence.
