Homeowner Fights Off Three Attackers

posted on July 2, 2016

An exclusive neighborhood near Houston, Texas, was the scene of an early morning shooting, as an armed homeowner fought off three attackers.

Just after midnight on Tuesday, police responded to a house in the affluent Afton Oaks subdivision, where the owner of the home said he was approached by three male teenagers who punched him in the face. The homeowner then shot at the teens, who fired back as they fled the scene.  

Later, the teens showed up at a nearby hospital, with one of the three bleeding from a bullet wound. The police were then notified by hospital security, and each of the teens were linked to the earlier shootout. Officers at the hospital said the teenagers gave differing stories, but they now believe robbery was the motivation behind the crime. An investigation into the shooting is still ongoing.
