    GOOD: Man Defends Himself And Others From Gun-Wielding Gang-Banger - Fort Bend, IN

    Fort Bend Homeowner Shoots, Kills Armed Man Angry Over Being Refused Entry To Party | FortBendNow.com



    A homeowner in the Providence neighborhood shot and killed an armed man who may have been seeking retribution after being kicked out of a party on Saturday night.

    The name of the dead man hasn’t yet been released, “pending forensic confirmation,” the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement issued Monday morning.

    However, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the case said the dead man is believed to be “a pretty high-ranking member of a gang,” whom the homeowner appears to have shot while “defending his property and his family.”

    According to the sheriff’s office statement, deputies responded to a disturbance and possible shooting incident at 10:48 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 8700 block of Warrenford Drive, between Bellaire Boulevard and Bissonnet St. west of State Highway 6.

    “Upon arrival, Fort Bend County deputies found an unidentified male lying in the street, the victim of an apparent fatal gunshot wound.”

    The sheriff’s office didn’t name the homeowner or reveal details of the shooting incident.

    But the law enfocement source familiar with the investigation said the dead man and one or more companions had approached the homeowner’s house and tried to enter, because one of his children was having a party there.

    But the dead man and his companions were told to leave, and initially did so, the law enforcement source said. But then they came back.

    “One of them approached the man” who owned the house “and threatened him.”

    Both the homeowner and the alleged gang member were armed with handguns, the source said. At least one shot was fired, and the man who tried to crash the party was killed.

    “Due to the circumstances surrounding this incident, this case will be referred directly to the grand jury,” the sheriff’s office statement said.
    Good on the homeowner, and on the PD/Media for not naming the victim. Sadly though, the homeowner/victim needs to be alert 24/7 for retribution from this thugs homies.

    This silver lining has an ugly, dark cloud following it.

    Why the grand jury?

    It wouldnt have made it that far here.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Hate to say this, but it's most likely time for the man to move to another neighborhood far away from his present residence. Gang mentality is usually to seek revenge when you kill one of their own. That's a shame for the home owner, but glad to see he defended his family and himself.
