Armed Homeowner Stops Attack On Brother

posted on December 21, 2016

On Monday morning around 2:30 a.m., there was a knock on the door of a residence in a quiet Lubbock, Texas, neighborhood. When a male resident asked who was there, no one answered. Then there was a second knock—followed by the sound of gunfire and the door being kicked in. 

The victim was attacked by one of two intruders, who was striking him with the butt of a gun as he tried to crawl to safety. The commotion woke the victim’s brother, who told his wife to call 911 and then grabbed his own firearm. When the homeowner arrived in the kitchen, he fired a single round at the suspect who was standing over his brother. As the second man fled, the two brothers disarmed and detained the first intruder. 

Police and EMTs arrived to arrest 27-year-old Adrian Lee Hernandez on burglary charges and to transport him to the hospital. His accomplice remains at large.
