NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida -- A mother found a bullet through her sons' bedroom window on Saturday morning after a SWAT stand-off across the street from their new home the night before.
The Armes family was evacuated around 9:00 p.m. on Friday and was not allowed to return home until 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning.
"A cop knocked on our door," said 10-year-old Corey Armes.
"We were walked about a block away and it was scary. We heard several gun shots," said his mother, Julie Armes.
The Pasco County Sheriff's Office's public information officer said deputies responded to a domestic dispute. The suspect, 62-year-old Robin William Kaminski, had threatened to kill his wife, who was in the house at the time but then left.
Deputies said Kaminski pointed his gun at the deputy and the deputy ran. SWAT arrived and deputies tried to negotiate with Kaminski. He then reportedly fired off several rounds from an AK-47 rifle. He shot into deputies' vehicles and flattened their tires.
Two deputies were injured by shrapnel. They were sent to the hospital in fair condition. They were later released.
Kaminski was shot and killed in self defense by several deputies, said the PCSO.
The Armes family just moved into the neighborhood about a week ago. They thought it was a safe neighborhood, and family friendly.
"We still feel safe here, even though that bullet came through my sons' window, because that was an isolated incident that could happen anywhere," said Julie Armes.
More information will be released on Monday at 11:00 a.m. at the PCSO.
