Home Invader Wearing Only Underwear Is Shot While Attacking Family

posted on May 23, 2017

Harris County, Texas, investigators told ABC 13 that, at around 2 a.m., a man parked his Lincoln sedan half a mile from a pastor’s home, broke in wearing only his underwear, and attacked.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Felipe Rivera said, “The door is kicked in and that’s how the family wakes up to discover the intruder in the residence.” Pastor Lorenzo Martinez and his wife, Gloria, were asleep, along with members of their family. “[He] just started hitting my dad, then he hit my mom, then my brother woke up and my brother started hitting him. He just kept attacking,” said Naarai Olver, Pastor Martinez’s daughter.

Eventually, the intruder kicked in the door where Olver’s brother-in-law was sleeping with his wife and children. The brother-in-law then retrieved his firearm and fatally shot the suspect. Olver added, “We are a Christian family, we don’t believe in killing anybody. But we had to do what we had to do to protect our family and protect our little kids.”
