VIDEO: Texas Woman Pulls Gun On Armed Robbers, Saving Her Husband
Houston, TX – Houston police have released surveillance video of three armed men who did a home invasion in broad daylight in November (video below).
Police said the incident occurred at about 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 while the victim was working outside his home located in the 9000-block of Shady Lane, KHOU reported.
The victim told police that he saw a black sedan make a U-turn and drive back towards his house.
He said the car stopped in front of his house and two men jumped out.
The footage from the home’s security cameras showed two men running up the driveway with their arms extended, pointing handguns at somebody off camera in front of the house.
One of the men was wearing a mask and the other appeared to try to turn his face away from the security camera as he ran by it by holding the hood up on his jacket, the video showed.
Then the car they arrived in pulled into the victim’s driveway and a third robber got out and went to help his partners in crime, whom the video showed were forcing the victim on his knees toward his garage at gunpoint.
The victim told police the men were demanding money as they forced him inside the house, KHOU reported.
The victim’s wife was home, and she heard the commotion as the three home invaders forced her husband inside.
So she grabbed her gun and came out of the bedroom pointing the weapon at the suspects, KHOU reported.
The suspects opened fire on the wife and narrowly missed her before they fled the home.
Police said two of the three suspects were black men, 30 to 32 years old, about five-feet-10-inches tall, and weighing about 225 pounds, KHOU reported.
Crime Stoppers has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the charging and/or arrests of the suspects.
