In Summerfield, Florida, a man was at home with his girlfriend when he heard his back door being kicked in by 4 armed thugs. Instantly, the victim’s dog “Zeus” charged at the intruders to protect his family and was brutally shot in the head. In the moments that followed, the punks realized what a big mistake they had just made, but it was way too late to avoid the wrath of the fed-up couple who were more than ready for some vicious payback, and rightfully so.

According to local news source WKMG, the shocking home invasion took place at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Monday, August 14, 2017. The victim, who has been identified as Shawn Peterson, was at home with his girlfriend, reportedly moving home entertainment speakers, when he heard the loud bang of his back door being kicked in.
In that moment, the 4 suspects crashed into the house and opened fire. Both Peterson and his girlfriend ran into the bedroom, but their courageous pit bull “Zeus” charged toward the attackers.
“I just heard my back door get kicked in and next thing I know, my dog ran out and I heard a gunshot,” said Peterson. This is the moment the 4 punks should have turned and run for their lives. The “alpha male” of the group tried instead to stick his gun through the bedroom door to kill Peterson and his girlfriend.
“And the next thing I know, a guy was meeting me at my door with a gun, stuck the gun in my door. I slammed the door and the gun just started going off,” Peterson said. This is when the fed-up couple had had enough crap from the brazen thugs.
“My girlfriend was at the closet at the time and I yelled at her. I said, ‘Throw me my shotgun.’ She threw the shotgun at me like in the movies and I caught and I fired one time, and I guess it hit the guy in the chest or whatever,” Peterson added.
That shotgun blast turned the tables completely. The 4 punks never expected their would-be victims to meet them with equal force, but they were so very wrong. The “guy” who Peterson knocked to the floor with his shotgun round was quickly picked up by his pals, and they all fled the scene. An anonymous person dropped that wounded thug off outside the Ocala Health Summerfield Emergency Room like the animal that he was, and he was declared dead a short time later according to the Ocala StarBanner.
The identity of the dead suspect has not yet been released by Marion County sheriff’s detectives pending notification of his death to the next of kin. It won’t be long until the dead punk’s family is interviewed by some anti-2nd Amendment liberal news station to say what a wonderful boy he was, showing his baby pictures and demonizing the man and woman he tried to kill in cold blood.
I’ve got a little clue for all the “thug families” out there. Law-abiding Americans are tired of your “precious little boys” breaking into our homes to steal what they won’t earn for themselves. Furthermore, many of us fed-up patriots are armed and ready to handle business, like Peterson was. It’s time to stop living your entire life off of government assistance. Go out, get a job, and start raising your damn children to be something other than criminals.
The truth of the matter here is that the dead thug deserved every bit of what he received the moment he decided to invade someone else’s home and attempt to rob and murder them. On a much better note, Peterson’s dog, Zeus, was taken to a nearby veterinarian hospital and treated for his gunshot wound. The canine hero is expected to make a full recovery. Although Peterson only got 1 out of the 4 thugs, I think this qualifies for a happy ending. Let’s not forget the moral of the story though. An armed society is a just society.
