Texas Teen Takes on Trio of Home Invaders to Defend His Family


Don’t mess with Texas. Or mama bears in Texas. Texas teenagers who are armed and want to be left alone at home. You and your compatriots will be a mess if you try to do any of these things.

This is exactly what three burglars discovered when they attempted to break into and rob a Harris County, Texas home, and found themselves staring down the barrel of a locked and loaded shotgun, with which the teenage defender of the castle blasted two away and sent the third running for his life.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is asking anyone with information to come forward with information about that escaped third member of the crime-minded trio. He doesn’t have to ask for information on the other two because when EMS arrived, they were already stone cold, having been introduced to the afterlife and eternal torment by the locked and loaded teenager. They were pronounced dead at that location.

Fox News Online reports on the events that led to the killing of two criminals, and the scaring off the third:

The investigators determined both victims and a third unidentified male, while armed and wearing masks, had attempted to break into a home occupied by an adult female, a 12-year-old boy, and two 17-year-old boys.

One of the 17-year-olds retrieved a shotgun and discharged it several times, striking two suspects.

Good thing for those other two teens that one was quick-thinking enough to grab a gun and start blasting away at the criminal elements attempting to break into his house! Without that thoughtfulness and marksmanship, who knows what horrors would have followed when the criminals got their hands on the innocent family?

Sheriff Gonzalez posted details about the incident in a thread on Twitter. He also described what was happening and the future. In his words (formatting was modified slightly to make it more readable)

Last night in Channelview at the 16000 blk of First Street, three adult males attempted to force entry into a home. The males were armed and wearing masks. The home was occupied by an adult female, a 12-yr-old male, and two 17-yr-old males.

One of the 17-yr-old male occupants retrieved a shotgun and discharged it several times striking two of the suspects. Both males were pronounced deceased at the scene. The 3rd suspect fled in a dark-colored, 4-door sedan. There were no other reported injuries. The case will be presented to a grand jury.

The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is urged to contact the HCSO Homicide Unit at 713-274-9100. #HouNews

What’s bizarre is that the case is going to a grand jury. Why? The lawbreakers broke into the house, intending to do God knows what, and got their just due. Why must that go to a grand jury at all?

The teen is doing well. He saved his family from being preyed upon by the trio of burglars!
