Texas Homeowner With AK-47 Fatally Shoots 3 Armed Robbers, Injures 2 More

Three men died after a botched home robbery of a man who had his fully-loaded AK-47 nearby

Houston, TX – A Texas homeowner shot and killed three men and injured two others with a AK-47 during a home invasion when the men reportedly tried to break into the residence at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police told KHOU that after the men got into the house, the homeowner was able to grab his gun and shoot four of them.

One of the men died in front of the house, according to KPRC.

Another of the wounded men fled on foot and was later found by police. That man was shot in the leg and was later hospitalized.

The three other men ran to an SUV and left, according to police. The SUV then crashed into a pole.

Another man was found dead inside the SUV, according to police.

A wounded man also fled the SUV after it crashed and then later collapsed on the street and died, according to KPRC.

The 20-year-old homeowner spoke to KTRK off-camera. The man, who was not identified, said two people broke through his door wearing ski masks and demanded cash.

The 20-year-old man said when he realized it wasn’t a joke, he reached for what the robbers thought was money but instead grabbed his AK-47 and then began shooting at the robbers.

The two armed robbers shot back as they retreated out of the house according to the homeowner’s story he told KTRK.

The 20-year-old homeowner said he knew the robbers from the past “in passing” and that he thinks they targeted him to rob him of money and jewelry.

A neighbor said he saw two men with large guns enter the home as others pulled up, according to KPRC. The neighbor said he went inside his home and then heard gunshots.

Police were investing the crime scene. KPRC reported there appears to have been a large gunfight as police have recovered several dozen shell casings.

Quote-"A Texas homeowner shot and killed three men and injured two others with an AK-47 during a home invasion when the men reportedly tried to break into the residence at about 1 a.m. Saturday."

5 to 1 odds and he got 3 ( and injured 2 ). Good job homeowner! and AOK..AK47

BTW- So how do like "dem apples" home invaders ?......I'm sorry what was that? Uh huh ....,yes,yes I know it must hurt. Yes, getting shot is just terrible. You see , this is what are called "serious consequences for your actions". Most people learn this at age 10. You "gentleman" unfortunately learned it the hard way ....you learned it at age "too late".

No one snapped on the homeowner being 20? If liberals have their way, he wouldn't be able to buy or own an "assault rifle" and thus would have just been another victim. Not in Texas... not yet anyway.

Smells of a drug rip. That said, the utility of an MSR in the home defense role is once again illustrated. FWIW, an AK47 is a select fire rifle that hasn't seen frontline use with its originating country for decades. Just saying. All the mundane civilian readers should remember many of our rulers would have us facing off mobs with flintlocks in our hands, if they could.

I hope this is an "up and up" story and not some drug deal gone bad. If legit, then I say cudos to the homeowner. Saved Texas taxpayers some money.

THREE DEAD SOB'S, AFTER THEY ENTERED THE WRONG HOUSE THAT BELONGED TO A MAN WHO WAS READY TO PROTECT HIS HOME. GOOD FOR YOU HOMEOWNER. IF MORE PEOPLE DID THIS WE WOULD HAVE LESS HOME INVASIONS BECAUSE MOST OF THE ONES WHO WOULD BREAK IN WOULD BE DEAD ALREADY.

Good job, Mr. Homeowner. He spanked them hard. Consequences, armed robbers, consequences. Mommy didn't teach them about that for when they became big boys. Notice how the mainstream media did not report an AK rifle was used to successfully defend his home?

This is exactly why the law abiding citizen needs large capacity magazines. Every story like this should have a happy ending...

This is why we must never allow them to disarm us. Just look at what is happening over in the European countries where the citizens have been disarmed. Heck just look at Dearborn and New York City and Chicago now.

Awesome job by the homeowner! Every POS that goes to the morgue instead of jail saves taxpayers a fortune!

20 year old homeowner with an AK47? He knew them?? This stinks. Sounds like they came to rob a drug house and got killed doing it. There's not a cop I know who wouldn't think that. I definitely don't buy no "innocent lawbiding citizen" protecting his home. Lay with dogs you get fleas.

Until the citizens and families of victims decide to hold judges like that accountable, rulings like this will continue. If it was my daughter I’m not sure I’d accept that ruling.
