When three Spanish-speaking males broke into a Harris County, Texas home, they probably thought they were going to walk right in and walk right out.
It is not known whether the men were in Texas illegally or not. But because of the lax enforcement of border laws in the state of Texas, the men might have thought burglarizing a home would be something they could easily get away with.
Little did they know one of them was about to lose his life.
Eight people were inside of the home when the men broke in. The grandmother, joined by her three granddaughters, were inside of the kitchen cooking breakfast at 4:30 a.m. when the armed men forced entry into the home.
The woman’s adult son heard the commotion, and when he heard the grandmother’s plea for the men “not to hurt the girls,” he sprung into action. As eight people were in the home at the time, he had to act quickly.
In true Texas fashion, the man quickly found himself in a standoff situation with the men. Before the men had a chance to respond, the son pulled the trigger and dropped one of the thugs like a bad habit.
