A man's home is his castle. Second Amendment makes it so! America needs more guns.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police say a man suspected of battering his girlfriend wounded a police officer late Sunday and barricaded himself inside an apartment with four young children.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said during a Monday morning news conference that the woman left the apartment late Sunday and alerted officers to the assault. They went to the Westboork Apartments, located near the Universal Orlando theme park. Gunfire was exchanged; Mina said they don’t know if the man was shot. The officer was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery. Mina said the officer has “very significant injuries” but is expected to survive. He asked the community for prayers for the officer and his family.

Mina said the suspect is holed up with four children, ages 1, 7, 10 and 12. “Our main concern is the safety of the children in that apartment,” Mina said.

Police have not released the name of the suspect or the officer.Officers evacuated other residents of the complex in the middle of the night. Some were milling around nearby restaurant parking lots on Monday morning, still wearing pajamas.

ORLANDO, Fla. —
A man who police say shot an officer before barricading himself in an Orlando apartment killed the four children he had been holding hostage before killing himself, police said Monday.

Orlando police Chief John Mina said at a press conference just before midnight that the suspect, who was identified as 35-year-old Gary Wayne Lindsey Jr., was found dead in a closet when officers entered the apartment nearly 24 hours after the standoff began.

Mina said officers tried to offer one of their phones to Lindsey, whose phone had spotty service, and saw that one of the children had been killed. Authorities entered the apartment around 9 p.m. hoping to rescue the others but all were found dead.

The children with Lindsey ranged in age from 1 to 11, Mina said. Two of them were Lindsey’s children and two belonged to his girlfriend, who called police Sunday.
