Invader Shot And Killed In Houston Apartment Complex

posted on February 4, 2017

You’re sitting in your living room when suddenly the door is kicked open, then gunfire rains in from the entryway. That nightmare scenario is exactly what happened to apartment dwellers near the West Loop in Houston last Thursday evening. But what the home invaders might not have anticipated was that the residents were also armed.

An Houston Police Department spokesman told The Houston Chronicle that when the invaders entered the apartment firing, one of the residents shot back and struck the shooter. That suspect fled to the parking lot and collapsed. Emergency medical technicians transported him to a local hospital where he died a short time later. After being shot in the back, one of the apartment’s residents drove himself to the hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.
