Two armed men apparently staking out a home in Sewall's Point, Fla., alerted the owner to their presence when a gun accidentally went off, according to local police. As the owner spotted, then pursued the pair — one of whom apparently carried a machete — they hopped into a 16-footer and speed off on the Stuart Causeway. The home owner is offering a $1,000 reward for information.
