Two would-be robbers were shot Friday night after they burst into a home with a fake gun and, authorities said, met a person inside with a real one.
The two men were in serious condition at the hospital Friday night, and both had suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies were called to the home in the 4400 block of Land O'Lakes Boulevard shortly before 6 p.m.
Five people, including a 2-year-old, were inside the home at the time of the attempted robbery, according to authorities.
No one inside was injured, deputies said, but a visitor to the home pulled out a .40-caliber handgun and shot the two men.
The suspected robbers stumbled outside and collapsed on the sidewalk.
