Bernard Freeman, a 46-year-old Houston rapper known as Bun B, was upstairs in his townhome at 5 p.m. in a gated community where he lives with his wife Queenie when she opened the door expecting to receive a package.
According to police, a 20-year-old masked man reportedly forced his way into the home, held her at gunpoint and wanted to go upstairs.
Fearing for her husband’s safety, she apparently offered the intruder her car keys and other possessions.
Police said the rapper heard the commotion, armed himself with a pistol and came downstairs. Inside an attached garage, Bun B allegedly found the intruder sitting in the driver’s seat of his wife’s car. The intruder reportedly turned toward the rapper and gunshots were exchanged.
