A 60-year-old man shot dead and armed robber stabbing an AK-47 in his face while he slept in the van where he lives next to his girlfriend and son.
Donovan Stewart, born in Jamaica but now living in Miami, said he was forced to act after the man broke into his van in the early hours of Monday.
Stewart told CBS Miami: & # 39; This guy I killed last night just pushed an AK-47 in my face. And as a boy born in Kingston Town, I don't go out like a punk.
Donovan Stewart, 60, told how he shot an armed robber after the man broke into the van where he slept with his girlfriend and 11-year-old son & # 39;
Stewart said he was sleeping in the van when he was woken by a loud knock on the door before an AK-47 was pushed in his face
Stewart said he was awakened by a loud knock on the van's door before it was pulled open by a man who used an assault rifle that demanded his jewelry.
Stewart used his training as a security officer and said he had knocked the AK snout off his face, removed the Glock he is holding, and emptied the magazine into the man's chest.
Stewart said he decided to act for fear of his girlfriend and 11-year-old son, who slept with him in the van.
Police were called to the area, near Little River in Miami, and found an unresponsive man who suffered a gunshot wound, WSVN reported.
The man, who was not identified, was declared dead on the spot.
Stewart added: & # 39; This man is knocking on my door while I'm dead asleep … I said all right, this is what is happening now. Are you gonna kill me? I am going to kill you. Let's see.
& # 39; So quick thinking, quick reflex, I am trained. I am a security officer, I have a [weapons] license, I have a hidden weapons license and I am a member of the NRA.
The guard said he was using his training to knock the gun muzzle out before he pulled out the Glock that he holds next to his sleep and empties the magazine into the robber's chest.
The police were called to the van in the center of Miami in the early hours of Monday and declared the alleged robber dead on the spot. Investigations are continuing
& # 39; You will not be alone & # 39; wake up in the morning and push an AK-47 in my nose and think you're live. No. They tried the wrong person. & # 39;
The police said it appears to be a case of self-defense and that all parties are cooperating in the investigation, but the probe is continuing.
Florida has a & # 39; stand-your-ground & # 39; law that allows citizens to use lethal force against real or alleged threats of violence, whether or not they could have withdrawn from the situation.
Delilah Gaitor, who lives in the area, also told CBS Miami that the same man had robbed her of money, an iPhone and her car the night before.
She added: & # 39; I feel very relieved now. This was something terrible for me. I was devastated and emotional. & # 39;
