Three held in Palmview home invasion (11-year-old shot by illegals, returns fire to protect mother)
TheArmedCitizen.com ^ | January 15, 2010 | Staff

From ValleyCentral.com:

Three men are being held for a Palmview home invasion where an 11-year-old boy was shot defending his mother.

Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies told Action 4 News that it happened off Minnesota Road and 8 Mile Line between Palmview and Mission around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging coming from the front door.

She got up to check and she saw two Hispanic males men wearing masks and armed with handguns walking towards her.

She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men allegedly tried to force it open.

The masked man kept telling her to open the door and she would not open the door.

The woman told deputies that the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area.

Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers.

The woman waited, opened the door, saw that the suspects were gone and called 911.

Deputies found blood all over the floor and noted that the front door had been knocked down.

Paramedics took the woman’s 11-year-old son to the McAllen Medical Center where he’s listed in stable condition.

But deputies told Action 4 News that a man with a gunshot wound to his neck ended up at the same hospital.

Investigators said nothing was taken from the home and that the wounded suspect was taken to a hospital in San Antonio for further treatment. He remains under guard.

Criminal charges are expected to be filed against him, if he survives.

Deputies said Border Patrol agents detained two Mexican nationals who were found in the area.

The two men are being questioned about the home invasion.

U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials told Action 4 News that they have filed immigration detainers against the two men.

If they were wearing masks, how do they know that they were “Hispanic” males?

The 11-year-old will be tried as an adult for attempted murder and then the mother will lose custody for having allowed this with a loaded gun in her home.

The 11-year-old will be buggered in jail and become a criminal later in life.

Isn't this how the script goes with liberals in charge?

Was the 22 the kid shot him with a shot gun? If it was a rifle, how did the invader end up with a shot gun wound?

I don't think the one shot in the neck at the hospital was wearing a mask anymore.

Oh, and the illegals who broke in will be arranged on charges, but will be allowed to not stay in jail pending the court date, based on their own recognizance. Of course, they give fake addresses as their current “living location” and never appear before the court after that.

They start a new life in a nearby sanctuary city breaking into homes where they should have started doing it, anyway. In this new city, they know that any crime they commit, from running into someone with a car to rape and burglary, means they are kept safe with the help of the local mayor and his “police force.”

This was in Texas, not going to happen.

Badly written article by the dying newsmedia. They end up hiring a lot of former illegals to write for papers and the editing is non-existent. The boy is a hero.

Hair color, skin color, accent? All sorts of Un-PC ways to recognize Hispanic males. And they don't say how much the masks might have covered. Were they also wearing gloves?

I don't know about their family status, but that day, the 11 year-old was indeed "the man of the house".

Good job young man protecting your mom...big time thanks and congratulations are in order.

Yeah, a bandana mask like in a Western would reveal the race but hide the facial features. Same with a balaklava...I wear one on cold days and it's pretty obvious I'm a white guy with blue eyes.

Thanks DaveLoneRanger.
The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging coming from the front door... she saw two Hispanic males men wearing masks and armed with handguns walking towards her. She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men allegedly tried to force it open. The masked man kept telling her to open the door and she would not open the door... the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area. Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers... Deputies found blood all over the floor and noted that the front door had been knocked down. Paramedics took the woman's 11-year-old son to the McAllen Medical Center where he's listed in stable condition. But deputies told Action 4 News that a man with a gunshot wound to his neck ended up at the same hospital... Criminal charges are expected to be filed against him, if he survives.
I hope that no criminal charges wind up getting filed against him.

Nice shootin' kid!

If this woman and her son are buying the home, rather than renting, I'll contribute $10 toward a new front door and better deadbolts.

This is Palmview, Hidalgo County, Texas, fortunately.

Semi rural, about ten miles from the Mexican border and eighty miles from the Gulf, south of Corpus Christi.

All you speculate is true for someplace like the San Francisco Bay Area, but there in Texas, the kid will just be given a bigger gun.

“How did she know they were Hispanic Males ?”

Maybe there was some mexican Language conversation amongst themselves during the Breakin ?

Maybe “Illegals” was interjected to the report after the Arrest of the Illegal ?

Maybe the USA has an Illegal Immigrant problem with “Hispanic Males” ? Just a few Million or two....each year.
