    Woman Kills Home Intruder, Wounds Husband

    Woman Shoots Robber, Husband During Home Invasion - Houston News Story - KPRC Houston

    HOUSTON -- A woman shot and killed an intruder and accidentally wounded her husband in a northeast Harris County home invasion, investigators told KPRC Local 2 Thursday.

    According to deputies, a couple found themselves staring down the barrel of a gun in their apartment in the Northshore Meadows complex in the 300 block of Audrey Lane shortly before midnight.

    A man had just broken into their apartment and was making demands.

    According to investigators, he wanted cash and drugs, and made the couple remove all their clothing.

    Then, gunshots rang out. However, the would-be robber wasn't the one squeezing the trigger, officials said.

    "The husband got into a physical altercation with the suspect," Harris County Deputy A.J. Kelly said. "The wife was able to retrieve a handgun that they had up in the room and she fired shots, striking and killing the suspect."

    The husband was also shot. Deputies said he was hit in the arm. They believe he may have been hit by friendly fire from his wife.

    The couple told investigators that they did not know the man or why they were the targets of a home invasion.

    "Seems like, at this point, they did what they had to do," Kelly said. "They were in fear that this individual who broke into their house was going to harm them."

    Deputies said they believe the intruder may not have been alone.

    "We have a female detained that was in the parking lot at the time of the incident and we're questioning her now," Kelly said. "She's definitely a person of interest. We think she was with him."

    According to Kelly, the woman was downstairs in the parking lot waiting in what appeared to be the getaway car.

    Investigators said that the husband suffered from an exit wound to the arm.

    He was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.
    I am thinking they mean to say that a round exited the bad guy and wounded the husband in the arm, maybe? Anyhow, glad that the bad guy won't be committing anymore crimes, and that the husband will be ok.

    Good for her. With the thug having them remove all their clothing, maybe he wanted more than cash and drugs. Or maybe he wanted them to think about something other than resistance. Good for the husband for attacking the thug with a gun, and not depending on the thug's mercy.

    Well done for both the wife and the husband. Too bad about the arm wound, but it's a lot better than what could have happened.

    Who knows what the intruder wanted with making them remove their clothes. But whatever it was... he won't be doing that again.

    Down for the big dirt nap!

    Time for a whole battery of tests such as hepatitus and aids for the hubby.

    So, there was an overpenetration issue? Bummer. Otherwise, what a great deal.

    Wow

    What composer to retrieve a gun and shot a BG that is tangled up with her husband. Kudos to that wife. It proves the point that if there is a gun in the house, everyone responsible enough needs to know how to use it.

    I don't see where people are thinking it is a round that passed through the BG and hit the husband. I read it as it winged him enroute to the BG. The statement says friendly fire. I would think that the leftest media would exploit super bullets that pass on to innocent victims.

    CCW,

    I am not saying for certain that a round exited the BG and hit the husband. That is just my take on it, since the story reads "Investigators said that the husband suffered from an exit wound to the arm."

    Now either I am right (which is possible) or the reported had their head up their arse (which is more likely) and didn't know how to describe what happened.

    Investigators said that the husband suffered from an exit wound to the arm.
    Perhaps he swallowed a gun.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.
