After confronting a man lurking in his front yard the previous morning, Clint Lowery called police a second time when the same man tried to gain entry by forcing open the door to his home. With his 2-year-old daughter sleeping inside, Lowery did what he had to do to ensure his family's safety. Lowery met the intruder on the front porch with a 12-ga. shotgun and held him there until police arrived. Lowry said, "I just did whatever anybody would do to protect their family."

A 21-year-old Texas man is being credited with protecting his family when he retreated into his family's bedroom, retrieved a gun and fatal shot one of three intruders who forcefully entered his home. The family was reportedly baking a cake in their home near Houston when the men knocked on the front door and pushed the father to the ground. The men lunged for the mother, and the 21-year-old got his father's gun and opened fire, killing one of the intruders. Police later spotted a vehicle with two men who matched the suspects' descriptions and took them in for questioning. (KHOU.com, Houston, TX, 2/23/13)
