Florida Thief Gets Surprise He Was Not Expecting

Chevez Antwan Fiason was released from prison, and he went back to doing what he knows--robbing homes. His style was to enter a home with guns blazing and shots fired--that way, he scared his victims out of fighting back.

Neither the justice system, nor his parents, were successful in trying to curb his criminal appetite. Yet, the 24-year-old was in for a surprise when he decided to rob a Lakeland home. He started by shooting his way in, but he was not met with fear.

While he was hoping his victims were unarmed, they were in fact, the opposite. The residents were armed, and the homeowner had his firearm ready. He shot Fiason with a single bullet to the head, and he was soon dead.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said, “Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision. If you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County."

Polk County has a "Stand your ground" law, and the homeowner was certainly a Second Amendment supporter.
