Lake County Sheriff’s Office says that the tenant claims Aswad got back on his feet and started firing at him again. In fear for his life and the lives of his wife and children, the armed victim put multiple rounds into Aswad’s body, killing him.

According to local news source WFTV, Fred Jones from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said, “He hit the suspect, the suspect went down, got back up and tried to shoot him again.

That’s when he shot the suspect multiple times.” The other three criminals took Aswad to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police arrested Isiah Velazquez, Tarek Ilarreza, and Lawrence Alexis, and they are currently being held without bail. All three are facing charges of burglary to a structure while armed, second-degree murder, and two counts of attempted murder.

According to police, the woman who lives at the residence where the invasion took place was shot in the foot after she woke up to the sound of her husband confronting the thugs. She was reportedly taken to a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
