One part of the story here that I saw is this:
When the father’s wife and son arrived home, the suspects fled, the report said. As they were fleeing, the son retrieved a gun and shot one of the suspects in the head, reports said.
Ooooo…. that’s not good.
It doesn’t matter if they pistol whip your dad and abuse your sisters in a closet, you can’t shoot them when they are running away.
The wording has varied depending who reports is, the Houston Chronicle describes the encounter this way:
The son grabbed a gun and went around the back to check on his father. Eventually, the son confronted one of the suspects in the street, and a gun battle ensued.
None of the news reports have indicated that no charges will be filed, I guess the police are still investigating.
I don’t know what the details are, so I am not going to armchair lawyer this one right yet.
What I can say with certainty is that Texas is better off with one less home invader in the state.
Also, I hope that the benefit of the doubt falls on the side of the son and not the criminal. I’d hate to see the son go to jail given the facts that we know right now.
