Hostage Escapes After Armed Burglar Falls Asleep, Cops Say

  Hostage Escapes After Armed Burglar Falls Asleep, Cops Say A Florida man allegedly burst into a hotel room last weekend and held the occupant hostage at gunpoint, only to doze off and lose the captive. Police say Jerry Allen Mills Jr. knocked on the door of a room at a Panama City Days Inn, and when the person inside answered, forced his way inside. Mills allegedly threatened to shoot the hotel guest if he tried to leave. The two remained in the room for an “extended period of time,” police said, until Mills fell asleep. Recognizing the opportunity, the hostage left while he had the chance. Authorities said that when Mills woke up, he went to the hotel’s front desk and ended up in a confrontation with three clerks.

DALLAS -- A young Dallas girl is expected to recover after she was wounded in a drive-by shooting while sleeping inside her home, reports CBS DFW.

Victoria Delgadillo was asleep in a bunk bed when she was struck by gunfire around 1 a.m. Sunday. Her mother and 6-year-old brother were also asleep in the bed, the station reports.

The girl's father Sergio Delgadillo told the station a car drove up the street and fired into his home.

"As soon as I heard the gunshot, I heard my daughter scream. I rushed to see her, and she was covering her face," Delgadillo said. "It came in through the cheek and went down the airway and cracked three ribs and punctured her lung."

Delgadillo called the shooting "careless and irresponsible."  His daughter is reportedly being treated in the ICU.

A motive is still unclear. Delgadillo told the station he doesn't know why anyone would target the family. No arrests have been made.
