Newly released surveillance footage shows a Florida man using a sled hammer to break into a neighbour’s home and allegedly shoot at a resident.
The video shows the suspect, later identified as 37-year-old Julio Perez, who was carrying a gun and breaking through the front door of the home on September 8.
There was another man after Perez – who has not yet been publicly identified by police – carrying a baseball bat. WSVN reported..
Claudia Poro, the wife of Robert Moina, the victim of the shooting, stated that the break came at a great speed during her time.
“My kids were in my bedroom,” she told the television station. I heard a loud noise. The door was on the floor. One of my neighbors entered my house through my door. “
Moina tried to stop the intruders and snatched the gun from Perez. He was allegedly shot in the shoulder and beaten with a bat.
According to WSVN, Moina was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center and discharged.
According to the WPLG, Peru and the couple’s three children were hiding in a cell during the attack.
“You feel safe when you’re at home,” Puro said. “It’s been very difficult to sleep since then. It’s very difficult to stay somewhere, like in the living room, without realizing that someone is going through the front door the way they did.”
Porro told WPLG that there was an ongoing dispute between Moina and Perez. He said the house had to be relocated after the horrific attack on the house.
According to the fundraiser, they have set up GoFundMe to help pay for relocation costs and are living with the family.
Perez was arrested hours later, just below the two houses where the alleged attack took place. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery, and was ordered to stay away from Moina, Puroro and their children.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in the Westchester neighborhood, about 10 miles west of downtown Miami.
