HOUSTON, TEXAS — A planned attack on a family was thwarted by the son who was returning to the home with his mother. Upon arrival, chaos was happening inside the home as 3 armed intruders ambushed the father as he arrived home from work and forced him inside.
The armed suspects were hiding in the bushes when the father approached the home.
Two sisters inside hid in a bedroom closet while the suspects ransacked the property.
The girls, a 21 year old and a 15 year old, managed to hit a panic alarm as the home invasion continued. Eventually, the suspects found the girls while searching the home.via kvue.com
Shortly after this began, the son arrived at the home with his mother and another sibling in the vehicle. Once he realized that something was wrong, he grabbed his gun and went after the armed suspects in an attempt to stop them from terrorizing his family.
One of the suspects, who was armed, was shot in the head.
The other two suspects jumped on top of the hood of the mother’s car while she and another child were still inside. The mom drove away and located a police officer at a nearby Whataburger.
The two remaining suspects stole the father’s vehicle and fled the scene. The homeowner’s stolen vehicle was a silver Toyota Sienna minivan with Texas license plates “DGL-3948.”via kvue.com
Police told reporters that it doesn’t appear that any of the suspects fired their guns.
They were probably too busy worrying about whether or not their lives were about to end at the hands of an angry member of the family they just attacked.
None of the 6 family members were hurt, but that could have been an entirely different story if the son hadn’t been armed and ready to defend his family.
The suspects have not yet been caught, but let’s hope police are able to catch up with them. Since they lost a buddy during this failed attempt, maybe the two remaining will think twice about their life of crime.
A Good Guy With A Gun.
