Father Saves Family From Intruder Trying To Torch Home

posted on October 25, 2016

A Lubbock, Texas, man used his firearm to save his family of six from a fiery death early Sunday morning.

According to local media reports, the family was sleeping when a man broke in the back door and went into the kitchen. One of the kids heard him, and let his parents know. The father quickly armed himself and went to confront the intruder.

“At that point, the father says the suspect told the family to get out of the house as he poured lighter fluid on the floor and attempted to light it on fire,” the police statement stated. “The father says he told the suspect to stop or he would shoot, but the suspect became more agitated and began approaching him until he could no longer back up. The suspect was then shot in the stomach.”

The intruder was taken to a nearby medical facility with non-life-threatening injuries.
