Gangbangers execute two women during home invasion

A 12-hour Polk County manhunt ended with four suspects in custody after a pawn shop robbery, a home invasion that left two women dead, and a chaotic police chase.

It all started just before 6 p.m. Thursday with the robbery at a Cash America pawn shop in Auburndale. Sheriff Grady Judd described it as a “well thought-out” crime created to “terrorize people” and demand cooperation from the victims.

In video from the store’s surveillance footage, the suspects could be seen pointing rifles towards at least one of the store clerks.

After leaving the store, the sheriff said the men led officials on a chase — during which shots were fired at two deputies’ patrol cars — to the nearby Chanler Ridge subdivision.

That’s where they ditched their vehicle, a red GMC SUV, and tried to run away. A deputy K9 caught one of the suspects, 22-year-old Devonere “Devon” McCune, before he could get very far.

Deputies say the other three escaped and ended up breaking into a home on the 600 block of Astor Road.

According to the sheriff, that’s where they killed two women who lived there — a mother and daughter identified as 72-year-old Patricia Moran and 51-year-old Deborah Royal.
