Man shot to death after forcing his way into home, deputies say

A man armed with a shotgun who forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's Newberry home Sunday was driven away after a fight inside the home, according to a report.

When he returned with another shotgun, a woman inside the home and a teenager each shot him with handguns, the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office reported.

The man, Kenneth David Drown Jr., 21, died at Shands at the University of Florida. None of the other people inside the house were injured.

The sheriff's office gave this account: The agency received a call from a house in the 8000 block of SE 85th Street that Drown was inside with a 12-gauge shotgun. Several people were in the house, including Drown's former girlfriend and their 9-month-old son. People in the house managed to disarm Drown after a shot was fired. Drown then drove away from the house.

While deputies were responding to the 911 call, Drown returned with another shotgun and forced his way inside again, according to a report. He pointed the shotgun at the homeowner, who shot him twice with a handgun, the report stated. A 16-year-old boy also shot at Drown, who was hit several times in the upper body, the report stated.

 Ahhh,yes, Florida. A domestic dispute. How tacky. Another reason to have really thorough background checks done. I wonder if those yokels got their weapons at a gun show?Obviously this guy is not playing with a full deck and I cant say much for the others either.

As if this only happens here in FL! I would hardly call domestic disputes "tacky". As a cop's kid, I would call them dangerous and tragic!

 Wellll...the nut's "former girlfriend" was there....and it seemed to be a domestic dispute, not a stranger who broke in. And he came back after the first try....he had a motive, he was motivated. Yahooooo.....

By the way, your yellow font is extremely hard to read.

Just more proof people don't need M4's, M16's, AK47, or semi-automatic weapons to defend themselves.

Or extended clips. A hand gun is perfectly fine for self defense.
