What a brave and heroic act!
Maurice Harris fought off two heavily armed men who were in the midst of invading his home. The reason Harris struggled with them so mightily is because of his 11-year-old daughter in his house - she was in the room the robbers were attempting to get into.
Sadly, Harris lost his life fending off the men.
Here's what the police spokesperson said:
"We call these two men beasts. These men are beasts. They storm inside the house. A little girl was asleep when she was surprised by the gunfire. The father was just trying to protect her. One of the guys tried to get to his daughter's room, he jumped up and they were fighting back and forth. I guess that's when the gun went off."
His neighbors are hailing the courageous man as a hero and rightly so!
One neighbor said:
"Unfortunately, he died but he's super dad. I hope I have that much courage if something like that would've happened to me."
The power of love is strong and this man obviously loved his daughter very much.
