Armed Son Saves Family From Home Invaders, Takes One Out With Headshot

A 20-year-old Houston man fatally shot one of three suspects who had invaded his family's home.

Houston, TX – A man fatally shot a home invader who was terrorizing his sisters and father on Tuesday evening.

Police said the incident began when the father arrived home and encountered three armed me who were waiting in his bushes, KHOU reported.

The suspects pistol-whipped the 39-year-old father and forced him to open the door to the home.

His daughters – ages 15 and 21 – were in the house when the home invasion occurred, but the suspects didn’t know that, KHOU reported.

The young women hit the panic alarm on the family’s security system and then hid in a closet.

The suspects forced the father to turn off the alarm, but every time he silenced it, the sisters would hit the panic button again from another location, KABC reported.

The suspects ransacked the property and eventually found the girls’ hiding spot in a closet, according to KHOU.

But that happened about the same time the girls’ older brother and mother arrived home, separately, KABC reported

KHOU reported that the 20-year-old son realized something wasn’t right when he got there, and went inside and got his pistol.

He fired at the suspects as they fled and hit one of them in the head.

The other two suspects jumped on the hood of the mom’s car, where she sat with another juvenile child in the driveway, KABC reported.

She slammed her car into reverse and escaped, and then she drove to a nearby Whataburger to ask for help, KHOU reported.

After the mother departed, the men stole the father’s silver minivan to make good their escape.

Police are still looking for the two armed men who may be driving a silver Toyota Sienna with Texas license plates DGL-3948.

Investigators do not believe the suspects fired any shots from their weapons, KHOU reported.

The wounded suspect was transported to the hospital where he later died, KABC reported.

None of the family members were seriously injured in the harrowing incident.

The case of the adult son shooting the suspect will be referred to a Harris County grand jury, according to KHOU.

Every shooting needs to be reviewed by a Grand Jury to make sure the story being told is true.

If I invite you over for a beer, but then I shoot and kill you claiming you broke in and I shot in self defense, wouldn't you want the truth to be discovered?

"Any competent prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich." While I don't think t will happen in Texas, if this had occurred in many places the prosecutor could proffer to the grand jury that the suspects were fleeing when the shooting started and therefore no longer a threat - and get the indictment.

And it's being referred to the Grand jury for what purpose exactly? It seems like a waste of taxpayer dollars, time, and money on something that appears to be clearly justified.

Good for the Son........He saved his Father and Sisters from whatever these idiots/thugs wanted to do to them. I just hope the other 2 don't come back. God protect them.

He shouldn’t have to go before any jury.

“He fired at the suspects as they fled and hit one of them in the head”. May be an issue.

This is a result of who we elect for Governors&Mayors. Right now in especially Sanctuary States&Cities is the guilty(the vicious crimes) are protected& set free while self defense against 3 armed intruders(criminals)somehow have to answer for defending their family&home in court. Please Vote responsibly your life may depend on it, seriously.

"The case of the adult son shooting the suspect will be referred to a Harris County grand jury..."

In an ideal world, that wouldn't be happening. Piss on a "justice" system that holds the individual accountable who protects their home and family, themselves.

A description of the 2 escaped KILLERS as they are responsible for the 1 death would be helpful. Other than that, Great News to awake too. One less Criminal on the streets to hurt others.

Hopefully the son will get therapy as taking a life may haunt him.

I say that as a man who has had unfortunately 3 family members murdered. 1 in 1978, 1993 and 2016 In 78 my brother was murdered by an Illegal Alien who was attacking a woman on the street in Chicago. A cousin who was delivering pizza's while attending Ball State University and the last cousin by a Mass Killer in Gary Indiana.

I think they have to do the "legal" line of BS, the 3 terrorized the dad and daughters, I don't think they should get a cookie for running away!! Let's not forget the mom and younger child in the car having to flee to safety, people get jobs or a Life, leave hardworking people alone.

Fleeing. What a lame reason to prosecute, if they do, because the SOB would've been afforded the same opportunity his cohorts were by their getting away~another chance to keep up their criminal activities! I say "One down, two to go"! Shame the son didn't get all three!

Has anyone considered the fact that the son was fully aware that his mother and younger sibblings were waiting in the car in the driveway and in his mind the home invaders were fleeing on their way to confront them or worse using them as victims in their gateaway??

It appears to have occurred in the City of Houston, while Houston is in Texas it is not your fathers Texas any longer. It is the Texas of O’Rouke who will tear down the existing wall with Mexico. I will pray for the family and hope Texas comes to its senses.

Too bad he didn't hit the other two. When they are caught ,they should be charged with murder for causing the crime thatgot their buddy killed.

That's the bad part our country is so screwed up right now they probably will try to prosecute the son and of course you know the family is going to come up tell everyone how good of a boy he was and as usual (going to college) lol there going to say he was leaving so why did you have to shoot him because besides pistol whooping someone they wouldn't hurt a fly all in a great big ploy to try and sue them!! Like i said the snowflakes have really messed USA up !!🤪

The family is blessed to have come thru the ordeal relatively unharmed. I pray they all find peace in that fact and honor their brother for his heroism in protecting them. I wish it was more than 1 out of 3 that got their just deserve, and I hope the son doesn't suffer from taking a life. Great job youngster!
