A 24-year-old man was shot and killed after he unlawfully entered a Lakeland home Friday morning, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
It happened around 6:30 a.m. at a home on Chestnut Hills Drive.
Deputies said Chevez Antwann Faison entered the home and fired shots at two people inside. He was then shot and killed by the homeowner. No one else was injured.
“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision — if you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County,” Sheriff Grady Judd said in a news release.
