12-year-old calls 911 as four masked thieves storm his house
Port St. Lucie police say a 12-year-old bravely called 911 as a gang of masked crooks robbed the child’s home and shot two people inside. Officers responded to the 2200 block of SE Morningside Blvd. on Sept. 4th around 10pm for reports of an armed robbery home invasion. Investigators said four masked thieves stormed into the residence demanding money. They shot one man six times in the torso, and another man in the buttocks.
The child and a woman were not injured. The suspects stole a large amount of cash and took off in a white Toyota Camry. Officers later spotted the vehicle, and during a pursuit that went into Fort Pierce, the four crooks bailed from the car and ran away. Police captured two of the suspects, 22-year-old Robert Jamall Burnadette and 21-year-old Collin Levi Woodard. Officers said they recovered a handgun, black latex gloves, black masks, and an undisclosed amount of money from the Camry.
