A 73-year-old Oakland Park man stood his ground Wednesday and now a burglary suspect is in the hospital recovering from several gunshot wounds, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.
Kevin Madigan, 45, of Boca Raton, was taken to Broward Health Medical Center. He was found bleeding and slumped at the wheel of a Toyota Camry that crashed into some bushes near Northeast 11th Avenue and 43rd Street in Oakland Park, sheriff’s spokesman Mike Jachles said.
“His injuries were described as not life-threatening,” he said. “There was stolen property recovered, a TV among other things, in his vehicle.”
“It appears this was a justifiable shooting,” Jachles said. “Every indication is that the homeowner was defending himself, his property and his neighbor from being attacked by the intruder.”
