A heroic father is dead after he tried to protect his 11-year-old daughter from two heavily armed men during a home invasion.

Police say the incident occurred late Tuesday night in Miami after two black males entered the home with the intent to rob. The dad, identified as Maurice Harris, 36, jumped up and fought the suspects when they attempted to enter his 11-year-old daughter’s bedroom. The dad was fatally shot “several times” during the scuffle.

Certainly a father and husband’s worst nightmare, the two armed men also held Harris’ wife at gunpoint during the home invasion, according to the victim’s mother-in-law Annie Streeter.

        Nowhere does it state the color of the person’s skin. I read it twice and still see no evidence of color noted.

    God bless this man for putting his family above his own safety, but I can’t help wondering the obvious. What a different outcome there would have been if he had been armed with weapon at least as deadly as those carried by the perpetrators.
