Texas Homeowner Shoots Attempted Armed Robber, Sheriff Warns Other Criminals

posted on May 14, 2016

When a Richmond, Texas, homeowner pulled into his garage Wednesday night and a man pulled a gun on him and demanded money, the homeowner grabbed a gun from his vehicle and shot the attempted armed robber twice, killing him, law enforcement officials told KPRC‑TV

According to Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, two firearms were recovered from the scene, one belonging to the homeowner and one carried by his assailant. “This appears to be pretty cut-and-dry,” Nehls said. Although the homeowner’s elderly parents live with him in the house, no other injuries were reported.

Noting that the growth of Fort Bend County is attracting criminals from Houston and elsewhere, the sheriff also issued a warning: “Don’t come into Fort Bend County and start waving guns around because you could leave in a bag,” Nehls said.
