A homeowner in Winter Haven, FL shot and killed an intruder that broke into his home on Monday morning.

According to, police said that homeowner Luis Pena fired a warning shot to try and scare the intruder, who was trying to open the back door of the house.

The intruder (Mitchell Large) apparently wasn't phased by the warning shot and entered the home anyway.  That's when the fatal shot was fired by either Pena, his wife, or son (yep...they all had guns).
