Just before 2 a.m. last Thursday, a woman heard a loud banging on her front door, and then a man yelling “SAPD!” That’s when the alarm went off in her head, because she knew her house was protected by the Bexar County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office, not San Antonio police. So she grabbed her phone and her gun, just in time to hear the back door being kicked in.
KENS-5 TV reports that the homeowner then fired shots from the top of her staircase, while the intruders began firing back—including from the front of the house. The suspects fled the scene and the homeowner is still pulling bullets out of walls, but no one was injured.
She told reporters all she could think of was Michael Robinson, the Universal City homeowner who died after being shot by a teenage intruder the week before. Currently, the suspects are still on the run and the investigation continues.
