911 calls released in Gwinnett home invasion

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Authorities have released 911 calls in an attempted home invasion in Gwinnett County that left one suspect dead Monday night.

Detectives were dispatched to the Valencia Apartments in the 10000 block of Springs Lane at around 11:30 p.m. According to the investigation, a group of suspects knocked on the door of the would-be victim's apartment. At least one suspect was armed with a bat.

"Yes, yes they tried to break into my house," the caller told 911 dispatchers. "Can you send someone? There are a lot of people."

The suspects told the victim to step outside into the breezeway. He refused and tried to shut the door, but the suspects pushed it back open, according to Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Michele Pihera.

"I just shot someone, I just shot someone," the caller told 911.

The victim shot at the three suspects, one of whom was struck in the chest and killed.

The caller told dispatchers that he was worried about his wife and child, who were at the home at the time of the attempted invasion. The woman and infant were not injured. The caller said that he didn't recognize any of the suspects.

The suspect who was shot and killed has been identified as 20-year-old Pablo Bermudez, of Peachtree City. Another suspect, 32-year-old John Michael Bush, was shot in the arm and taken to Gwinnett Medical Center-Duluth. He and a relative, 33-year-old Saveion Wylie Bush, were arrested and charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and first-degree home invasion. Pihera said both suspects are cooperating with investigators.


The two will be charged in their alleged accomplice's death because it happened while the death happened while they were in the commission of a felony, according to Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith.

Authorities are searching for clues inside a second apartment in the same complex.
