The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Thursday the homeowner was also shot and hospitalized but is in stable condition. Detectives say the homeowner said he vaguely remembered one of the suspects from a past Craigslist transaction.
The Ocala Star Banner reports the homeowner was awakened by a loud noise and grabbed his AR-15, before exchanging gunfire with the alleged intruders.
Authorities found one suspect dead at the home and identified him as 21-year-old Keith Jackson. They say 22-year-old Nigel Doyle was found mortally wounded and died at a hospital.
