Florida Self-Defense: Bradenton man shot during break-in, Sarasota sheriff says :: 12/23/2018

SARASOTA — A 28-year-old Bradenton man who attempted to enter a home illegally on Friday night was shot by the homeowner in self-defense, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim was identified as James Jarvis of Bradenton, who detectives say left a bar Friday after 1 a.m. and, at about 2 a.m., attempted to enter a home through the back door in the 2800 block of Mayflower Street.

Jarvis was confronted by the homeowner, who told him to leave, but he refused, and the homeowner shot him in self-defense, according to detectives.

He is currently at Sarasota Memorial Hospital in critical but stable condition.
