No discription. Come on Mr. Sentinel. What some cold hearted callous bastardos. I hope they resist arrest so the cops can put them down. We do not need low life trash like this roaming around. Next time, they will kill the baby, the parents, someone.

Again, no description other than masked men. How about height and build? Accent in voice? Anything to be on the lookout for other than three men. We got a better description of the freakin car.

Yea, probably. Real tough men to hold a gun to a 1 year old.

The recent increase in robberies is just the beginning! This rotten economy is breeding criminals! Im considering a large dog for my house! Big Dog plus Gun should help to avoid this type of robbery!

One of these days they will break into the wrong house and they will end up dead. Then of course, the families of the dead thieves will sue.

You can almost certainly bet that this was not a random attack. More than like, drugs and owed money were involved.

Kinda looks that way. Seems odd that they know they were headed to Winter Garden.

same as the other "home invasion" on Sunday where the owner emptied a 9mm at the fleeing truck. Some random crimes seem not so random.

I live in Lake County, Montverde is all rural area. Whoever did this knew these people and knew that they had money, drugs, etc.. There are no blacks living in Montverde, and no many that travel through that area. When this comes out, I'm willing to bet that the perps knew these people. But of course, its always convenient to blame it on the blacks.

Some stupid, ignorant families might try to sue, but I doubt they'd even get in front of a judge. There's no wrongful death liability when the deceased is killed when armed and threatening the life of another; especially during a home invasion. Just remember to tell the cops who arrive on the scene that you were in fear for your life.

You know, that was my first thought when I read this article, that there was something "not right" about the story; I'm also willing to bet that the people had SOME kind of connection, however slight, with the ones who robbed them. However -whether they knew them or not, if they WERE so low as to hold a gun to the side of a babys' head, they're the absolute lowest of lifeforms; hopefully they'll be caught, soon.
