• Surveillance shows armed men in Longwood home invasion


    LONGWOOD, Fla. - Investigators are asking the public's help in tracking down two men who barged into a Seminole County home and opened fire last month.

    The Sheriff's Office released surveillance video that shows the men inside Mel Stevens' home on Torpoint Gate Road in Longwood.

    Stevens' personal security cameras were rolling on Nov. 19 when the two men pulled into his driveway and entered the home, one armed with a gun.

    One of the men opened fire, nearly hitting Stevens and his dog, Cheyenne.

    Two bullets buzzed by Stevens as he ran for his own weapon to chase the guys off.

    "All I could think was get my gun and get back there," he said. "Get my guns and get back there, and by the time I did, they were gone."

    Stevens said he thinks his real estate business may have made him a target because he deals in foreclosures.

    "It's unnerving," said Stevens. "It's definitely unnerving. I don't feel comfortable like I have for many years."

    Stevens said he now enters the home wearing a bulletproof vest, and he says he hasn't slept since that night.

    Anyone that recognizes the men on the video are asked to contact the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
