Wounded Homeowner In Stable Condition At Hospital

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — Police officers shot a man several times Friday morning after he set his foreclosed townhouse on fire, according to the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

WPLG-TV reported that a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy went to a townhouse at 738 SW 107th Ave. to serve an eviction notice about 11 a.m.

The real estate agent for the property confirmed the man inside the home was Allen Gauntlett, 52, who had lost the home to foreclosure after owing $10,000 in homeowners’ dues and fees.Police officers said Gauntlett would not come out of the home, and the deputy called for backup.

“As we were sending a unit to that location, the BSO deputy then called again and said that the subject was setting the house on fire,” said Sgt. John Gazzano, of the Pembroke Pines Police Department.
