Off-Duty Florida Police Officer Kills Burglar Breaking Into His Home

An off-duty Miramar (FL) police officer awoke to the sound of a man burglarizing his home early this morning. The officer confronted the man and a shooting ensued.

The burglar was pronounced dead at the scene.

An attempted burglary occurred in the area just 15 minutes prior to the break-in at the officer's home; however, authorities have not said if the deceased burglar was one in the same.

"There was a confrontation and there was a shooting, and the burglar is not going to be committing anymore burglaries," said Broward PBA president Jeff Marano.
