FL: Palmetto City Commissioner shoots home invader

This happened last month, but just found the article noting the commissioner's first public meeting since the incident:
Williams was home with his daughter on Riverside Drive. He opened fire on Avelino Vasquez-Perez after the suspect forced his way into Williams' garage, attempting to break into his home. Two bullets struck Vasquez-Perez and he was then captured by police.
"The circumstances of this particular incident were pretty cut and dry and allowed for a pretty quick conclusion about whether the use of force was justified," said Chief Scott Tyler with the Palmetto Police Department. "And we believe the commissioner was defending his home and his family.”
