A father was coming home from work when a gang of hoodlums who were hiding in the bushes near the door jumped him and forced him inside. Two girls, ages 15 and 21, hid in the bedroom closet as the gang began searching the house for valuables.
Eventually, they found the girls – and who knows what would have happened if the mother and son had not gotten home when they did. One of the thugs was armed, but the son was too. He remained calm, and when the opportunity came, he shot one of the thugs in the head.
The other two jumped on the mother’s car, but she drove away and kept going until she found a policeman.
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.”
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.
