Burglary suspect shot inside Kissimmee home, deputies say

A 28-year-old burglary suspect was shot on Tuesday after he entered a home in Kissimmee.

According to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a home located on Royal Palm Drive on Tuesday, May 21, in reference to a burglary in progress. When they arrived at the incident location, the burglary suspect – identified as David Martinez-Estrada – was already inside the residence.

The sheriff’s office stated that deputies contacted Martinez-Estrada while he was inside the home, and they ordered him to step outside the residence. Martinez-Estrada “failed to comply” with those orders, and he “continued to go further” into the home.

Moments later, the deputies heard gunfire from inside the residence, and Martinez-Estrada soon exited the home advising that he had been shot, according to OCSO.

Deputies rendered aid to Martinez-Estrada, and he was transported to a local hospital.

A female victim spoke with deputies and claimed that she “acted in defense of herself and her family.” According to the victim’s statement, Martinez-Estrada allegedly “forced his way” into a bedroom that the victim and her family were in.

After receiving medical treatment, Martinez-Estrada was arrested and transported to Osceola County Jail, where he is currently being held without bond. He is being charged with criminal mischief with damage over $200 but less than $1,000, unarmed burglary of a dwelling, stalking, and resisting an officer without violence.

No further details were provided by the sheriff’s office regarding the incident.

If anyone has information related to this case or any other similar incidents, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office asks that you call 407-348-2222.
