Man shot in St. Petersburg home invasion dies

ST. PETERSBURG — A 55-year-old man died Friday afternoon after two masked men shot him during a home invasion early in the day, police said.

Angelo Jerome Barbery was sitting on the porch outside his apartment, 1405 7th Ave. N, at about 2:30 a.m. when he was approached by two men wearing masks, police said.

One of the men shot Barbery before entering his apartment, a witness told police. It was not immediately clear if any items were stolen.

When police arrived at the home, Barbery was lying on the porch with critical injuries, police said.

Barbery was taken to Bayfront Medical Center, where he later died.

No motive for the shooting was immediately clear, but detectives said there are "indications of drug overtones." They did not elaborate.

Neighbors, who did not wish to be identified, said Barbery lived in the apartment for a couple of months and they noticed a lot of cars and visitors at night.

Barbery was most recently arrested in May 2007 on charges that included cocaine possession, Pinellas County jail records show.
