Houston police say a home invasion suspect held a woman at gunpoint and was then shot in the head by the woman’s husband.
KHOU reports that two suspects approached the wife in the driveway at 10:30 pm, holding her at gunpoint and allegedly attempting to rob her. They took her purse and “tried to force her into the house.”
However, the husband heard sounds, grabbed his gun, and confronted the two suspects. He then opened fire, shooting one of the suspects in the head. The other suspect fled the scene.
Talk about terrifying! A husband shot at 2 would-be robbers, after they held his wife at gunpoint & tried to force her inside the house. Heard commotion, so he grabbed his gun. Fortunately couple wasn't hit, one suspect was hit in the head, the other took off. #khou11 #htownrush pic.twitter.com/STzD7jj5DY
