OVIEDO, Fla. – A Winter Park man and an Orlando man were arrested in connection with a burglary and fatal shooting, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said Karl Makarowski Rodriguez, 23, has been charged with felony murder and burglary. Luis Lopez Ruiz, 32, was arrested Thursday on the same charges.
Deputies were called around 1:15 p.m. Monday to a home in the 2000 block of Westbourne Drive in unincorporated Oviedo.
In a 911 call, the owner said she was in the home by herself when she heard someone breaking in. She said one of the two men came to her bedroom, which prompted her to fire at least one shot.
“This was a homeowner who was very frightened,” Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Kealing said. “This was a bad guy who was literally in her home and she took the step necessary to protect herself.”
