    GOOD: Homeowner Stops 4 Armed Intruders - San Marcos, TX

    Police: 2 teens killed trying to break into home | AP Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    AN MARCOS, Texas A man shot and killed two teenagers and wounded another when they tried breaking into his home early Friday, police said.

    A fourth teenager was arrested and is expected to be charged with aggravated robbery.

    Three of the four male teenagers who tried breaking into the home were armed, one with a handgun and two with pellet guns that looked like more powerful weapons, San Marcos Police Chief Howard Williams said.

    One of the three college-aged people who lived in the rental home opened fire on the teens with a .40-caliber Glock pistol, killing two 16-year-olds and wounding another suspect. A 17-year-old suspect fled the scene but was captured and arrested after returning to the scene to check on his friends, police said. He's expected to be charged with aggravated robbery, Williams said.

    The wounded suspect was taken to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin with non-life threatening injuries, Williams said. Officials say the wounded suspect is also expected to be charged.

    Police did not identify the suspects or those who lived in the home. None of the residents were injured. One was a Texas State University student.

    Williams said the shooter appeared to be acting in self-defense and "there doesn't appear to be a crime" related to the shooting.

    The suspects are from Luling, about 20 miles southeast of San Marcos, Williams said. It does not appear they know those living at the home, he said.

    The shooting happened shortly before 2 a.m. Friday. Police responded to a 911 call about a home invasion and shots fired.

    "If you feel threatened, you certainly have a right to defend yourself," said Williams.

    San Marcos is about 30 miles south of Austin.
    Seems to me the two that survived should be charged with felony murder, not aggravated robbery.

    Good on the PD/Media for not identifying the victims by name or address.

    Ahh, my bad. Did a search on a couple of keywords and came up empty.

    Mods please close.

    But the original posting (article) said nothing about the invaders being ARMED. That was a key piece of info! Thanks!
