A 17-year-old retrieved a shotgun Friday evening, then shot and killed two masked home intruders in Houston, Texas.

A third intrusion suspect fled the scene.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted about the incident Saturday, writing:

Last night in Channelview at the 16000 blk of First Street, three adult males attempted to force entry into a home. The males were armed and wearing masks. The home was occupied by an adult female, 12-yr-old male, and two 17-yr-old males. One of the 17-yr-old male occupants retrieved a shotgun and discharged it several times striking two of the suspects…The 3rd suspect fled in a dark colored, 4-door sedan. There were no other reported injuries.

Deputies arrived on scene to find the two masked intruders deceased inside the residence.
