TAMPA, Fla. - A suspect in a Tampa home invasion was critically injured when authorities say his intended victims fought back.
While Evans was forcing the previously sleeping man to the floor, authorities say the first man grabbed Evans, and the two began to struggle. Several shots were fired before the previously sleeping roommate got control of the gun. The roommate then got a machete that was in the room and struck Evans several times. The man Evans was fighting was accidently hit with the machete above the knee, but the injury was minor.
Evans was in critical condition at a Tampa hospital Wednesday.
