This is another “good guy with a gun” story, but this one has a twist. This “good guy” is actually a good kid. He’s a teenager, only 17 years old, and he stood guard and defended his Texas home and everyone in it from masked home invaders. Fox News reported that Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is asking anyone with information to reach out to his office after two men allegedly attempting to break into a home Friday night were shot and killed by a teenager with a shotgun.
A homicide release record showed that at approximately 10:40 p.m. local time, deputies responded to a call in the 16000 block of First Street in Channelview, Texas.
Upon arrival, deputies located two men unresponsive from apparent gunshot wounds on the lawn to the side of the home.
EMS personnel pronounced both men dead at that location.
The investigators determined both victims and a third unidentified male, while armed and wearing masks, had attempted to break into a home occupied by an adult female, a 12-year-old boy and two 17-year-old boys.
One of the 17-year-olds retrieved a shotgun and discharged it several times, striking two suspects.
There was a third suspect, but he took off running into the night, and at the time of this reporting, he has still not been apprehended.
