On Thursday, an Orlando man shot and killed a 21-year-old who was
fleeing his yard. He didn’t appear to be stealing anything, according to
witness accounts. He didn’t appear to be threatening anybody. But
Claudius Smith said he feared he was a burglar, followed him over the
fence to a neighboring apartment complex, where he shot him after he
said he felt threatened, according to a confession documented in an
Orlando Police Department report. Smith even said he feared victim
Ricardo Sanes was armed “because his pants were falling down” and his
hands were in his hoodie pockets, according to a report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
