Deputies investigate shooting in Summerfield

SUMMERFIELD, Fla. – Two intruders, one of whom was wearing a horror movie mask, were killed Wednesday night in an apparent shootout during a Marion County home invasion, deputies said.

The home invasion happened around 8:20 p.m. at a home in the 14900 block of Southeast 32nd Court Road in Summerfield.

Deputies said that when investigators arrived to the scene, they found one of the intruders, 21-year-old Keith Jackson Jr., who was wearing a Jason Voorhees mask from the movie "Friday the 13th," dead. Another intruder, 21-year-old Keith Jackson Jr., and the homeowner were found suffering from gunshot wounds, according to deputies. Jackson later died, according to officials.

The homeowner is in stable condition. He was found with an AR-15 rifle next to his legs.

He told deputies that a man he vaguely remembered from a Craigslist transaction knocked on his door asking for help with his vehicle. He said he told the man he couldn't help him and went to sleep a short time later.

The homeowner woke up when he heard a loud noise and immediately grabbed his AR-15. He said he and Jackson exchanged gunfire, although he doesn't know who fired first, according to the affidavit. Doyle then also began firing, hitting the homeowner, so the homeowner shot him, as well, records show. 

Deputies said Robert John Hamilton, 19, and Seth Adam Rodriguez, 22, were located nearby after the home invasion.

They told deputies that they and the other two men had gone to the home to steal marijuana and guns.

Rodriguez was arrested on charges of homicide and home invasion robbery with a firearm. Hamilton was arrested on charges of home invasion robbery with a firearm.

UPDATE: The second suspect that was shot during the home invasion, has succumbed to his injuries HOME INVASION SHOOTING...
