Altamonte Springs Police say it started out when the suspect, 21-year-old Brandon William Michael Houston, walked into a Walmart at 200 S State Road 434 and shoplifted. They said Houston ran to a nearby home... Walked through the front door and pointed a gun at the homeowner while asking for his car.
"I'm not in any danger right now, but someone just walked in and demanded my car keys at gunpoint, so I'm safe now," the homeowner told a 911 operator.
