Rapper Bun B shot an alleged home invader who was holding his wife at gunpoint Tuesday.

The incident occurred around 5:45 pm Tuesday, according to Fox News. Police said, “A female heard a knock at the door, and when she opened the door, she was confronted by a masked individual who demanded valuables from her. She then offered up her Audi – which was parked in the garage and while Bun B was upstairs, he hears the commotion and grabs a gun and heads downstairs.”

KTRK reports that Bun B, a staple in the Houston, Texas, rap scene and philanthropist in his own right, went into the garage and saw the suspect, Demonte Jackson, allegedly holding a gun to his wife’s head. Bun B then “fired several shots” and Jackson fled on foot.

Jackson later went to a hospital to get treatment for his gunshot wound. He was treated then released into police custody.
