    Got to leave one alive to tell the story ...... (though not intentional by LEO's description of incident in video link)

    Tramel was questioned at Tampa General Hospital but denied involvement, deputies said. Then he told them that Casado wanted to rob the homeowner, according to his arrest report, so he rode with the two men. They wore masks and gloves and armed themselves.

    When he heard gunfire, Tramel said he went into the home and ended up getting shot, the report said. ;)

    If LE links the shooter to the dead guys as known associates it’s a bad day for the homeowner.

    What I don't understand is if they targeted his house based on pics he posted of his firearms in what world did they think it would be a good idea to rob the dude while he's home?? Did they think the guns were just for show? Lol

    Should not make a difference, they had face coverings on with gloves and were armed. Home Invasion style.

    I hope the shooter wasn't white. If so, any minute now CNN will be reporting that the black fellas was just breaking in to sing him lullaby's to help him sleep.

    Probably a 9mm 1911 at that.

    At the end the press cries about not being able to dox the innocent gun owner.

    "Sheriff’s officials did not identify the homeowner because of their interpretation of Marsy’s law, a constitutional amendment that is designed to protect crime victims but also deprives the public of information that has historically been provided in Florida."

    Second article I linked with the pics mentions the Glock and the Kriss.

    Glocks jam... fancy that!

    Even if there was a relationship between the perps and the homeowner, it doesn't keep the homeowner from defending himself.

    Pull out a 10mm rifle, and perps run away!

    Homeowner called neighbor first, then 911... good thing, or the third guy might have escaped.

    We desperately need to reform the legal system and penal system. They shouldn’t have been out in public. Probably shouldn’t have been breathing.

    Never seen a Glock jam unless it was limp wristed according to the RO that was running the shooter who jammed. Shot IPSC/USPSA for 15+ yrs and a lotta guys shot/shoot Glocks dirty, clean, wet, dry...no jams.

    Calling Promag. Why you'd have a Kriss and Promag, I dunno. But calling Promag. Or journalist doesn't know the difference between empty mag and jammed gun. :p

    On that jamming issue....I've seen Every make from P '08s to last week's Glock manufacture fail here. Revolvers included. This is the place "Perfection" goes to take a Poop!

    Perhaps he kept pulling the trigger instead of cycling the slide.

    Given the inherent lack of accuracy/details in news articles, "jam" could mean "slide locked open on empty magazine".

    He had already shot two perps and was working on the third when this "jam" happened. Coulda just run outta ammo and didn't have a fresh magazine.

    I've seen a couple of Glock 40S&W's go bang on extracting and ejecting to show clear. One was at Skip J Range in Anderson SC at an Area 6 one year. Required stitches.

    It's entirely possible he could have been using crappy aftermarket mags too.
