PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Six people are charged for Thursday morning's
home invasion in Pensacola that resulted in a suspect being shot.
It happened around 4 a.m. at a home in the 7300-block of W
Jackson St. The Escambia County Sheriff's Office says the
homeowner -- 65-year-old Keith Fendley -- shot one of the
suspects who broke in.
One of the six arrested is the homeowner's granddaughter. Those

Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons says the six suspects came
up with the plan in Santa Rosa County. They decided to try to
rob Register's grandfather, Fendley, for money to bail a friend
out of jail.
Sheriff Simmons said Crear and Cromwell broke into Fendley's
home after the group cut the power. Once inside, Fendley shot
Cromwell in the chest.
The group of six then got into cars and drove off -- with one
vehicle crashing nearby. A second vehicle then took the entire
group to Baptist Hospital.
Deputies at the hospital stopped the group of six and eventually
arrested them for incident.
Cromwell suffered non life-threatening injuries.
Sheriff Simmons said Fendley was not harmed.
