The elderly Bristol man who survived a home invasion robbery back in July and wound up killing the intruder has died.
Bradley Harvell, 82, passed away Monday night at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. According to his nephew, Kenny Stewart, Harvell suffered a heart attack two weeks ago and has been hospitalized ever since. He underwent surgery and, either during or after, had a stroke that ultimately took his life.
Harvell owned the Slip ‘N Slide bar and his home was adjacent. He shot and killed Octavius Barnes, 23, when he tried to rob him over the summer.
