A 21-year-old Texas man is being credited with protecting his family by shooting one of three men suspected of forcing their way into their home outside of Houston.
Harris County Sheriff's deputies tell KHOU.com that the man's father was pushed to the ground by one of the suspects when he answered the door Thursday night.
When the intruders went to attack the mother, the son ran to retrieve his father's gun and fatally shot one of the suspects, the report states. The other two suspects reportedly fled the scene.

Another in a typical string of home invasion stories, where the accomplices get away.
The only solution is high capacity magazines.
( Just to make sure I beat some liberal to the punch)
Maybe the intruder wanted to commit “suicide-by-homeowner” and had there not been a gun in the residence, then a life would have been saved...oh what warm and loving thoughts.
Of course I’m being sarcastic — BIG TIME — glad there’s a story of a private home owner that was armed and able to defend his property and family!
One less thug the citizens of Texas will have to feed, house, clothe and provide legal representation for in the coming decades.
The accomplices are now in custody.
When someone breaks into an occupied home like that they don’t intend to leave the family alive. Too bad the kid didn’t kill all three.
“The accomplices are now in custody.”
And will be charged with First degree murder.
Do you mean intent or conspiracy to commit First Degree Murder?
Should be straight up murder. That is the law as I understand it. A homicide was committed during their crime, and they will be pegged for it.
Has anyone submitted this to husseins web site requesting stories about gun violence yet?
Sadly, a guy can’t even go to work anymore without worrying about someone shooting him. The family might sue the homeowner for lost future wages/earnings.
What, he didn’t call 911???
Stories like this from Texas are becoming almost boring. My reaction was: well of course. It was Texas!
A young man protects his family in a time of dire peril in TEXAS, and is (I love it) CREDITED for his action.
In how much of this country would the state governor, the town/city mayor, the media and the anti-gun ownership zealots be demanding his prosecution, trial and incarceration?
I think Texas should set up a monetary fund to reimburse the family defender for the cost of the bullet(s) actually expended in the defense of home and family.
Probably around $30.00 or $40.00 should cover it.
That said, I don't know how easy it is to get a conviction.
Or shoot his twice barrel shotgun in the air?
In what I take to be a perverse interpretation of “felony homicide” prosecutors now charge accomplices with first degree murder when the perpetrator of a felony is killed during the commission of a crime. Basically, “felony homicide” makes any death resulting from the commission of a felony first degree murder, and makes accomplices liable as well. Clearly, the legislature never intended this to apply to accomplices of a person killed by an intended victim.
The clear intent was to preclude pleas of “I didn’t mean to hurt anyone” from being heard by juries when robbers killed liquor store clerks and to hold the get away driver just a culpable as the triggerman.
Anyway, anyone who saw an intruder throwing his mother to ground has a moral obligation, not just a right, to kill the mother.
Yep. Thx for that clarification.
