WATCH IT: Neighbors On Edge After Home Invasion
Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables said the 34-year-old was alone inside the home in the Timberlane subdivision on Briarcreek Boulevard near Cades Cove Drive at about 6 a.m.
Investigators said the woman opened fire when the attackers burst through her bedroom door.
Both attackers were wounded. Detectives said the attackers, identified only as teenagers who live in the neighborhood, ran out of the home and called for help, claiming to be the victims of a shooting.
One of the teens was taken into custody while the other was hospitalized.
Residents said the attack was too close to home for their comfort, and they're considering arming themselves for protection.
"We've discussed it with all the girls out here in the neighborhood," resident Rhonda Potenza said. "We're going to get gun safety courses … we've got to do what we've got to do."
Good all the Girls are going for training. If this is what it takes.
Great job, and though it's sad it had to take a close call like this to "wake up" the girls in the neighborhood, the outcome is that they will all take firearms classes now, and hopefully stay armed -- and safe -- now. Wonderful outcome.

What about the men... Don't they need training... or did they just interview women... But I am glad she was armed!

See Fellas, thats how things work down here in Texas; WE SHOOT BACK!
Besides, to me the only things scarier than a pissed off man with a gun, is an angry female with a gun.....Especially my wife!

Another Rape/Murder stopped by a well armed CITIZEN...
And they had the nerve to "call for help, claiming to be a victim"...
Good outcome all around. I agree that it's sad that it takes that much to get people working towards self reliance and self protection, but at least they are moving.
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.

But remember... practice practice practice! We don't want to be costing the State unnecessary spending, thinks are tight ya know!
