NEWBERRY, Fla. (AP) — Deputies say north Florida homeowner and a teenager fatally shot a man who twice forced his way into the home.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office reports 21-year-old Kenneth David Drown Jr. was armed Sunday when he barged into the home of his ex-girlfriend and their baby.

Authorities say someone inside the home told 911 dispatchers that Drown was armed with a 12-guage shotgun. During a scuffle, Drown was disarmed and left the home. Before deputies arrived, he forced his way inside again, armed with another gun.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Drown pointed the gun at the homeowner, who shot him. A 16-year-old also shot Drown. He was hit several times in the upper body and died a short time later at Shands at the University of Florida.
