A south Houston, Texas, couple was loading items into their car in
front of their home when two young men approached them and struck up
a conversation. The woman said the men made her uncomfortable, and
she immediately backed away from them. She noticed that as one man
kept talking the other was moving behind her husband and kept his
hand deep in his pants pocket. The woman ran inside and called 9-1-1
and then looked out her front window. One of the men now had a gun
pointed at her husband's head. She then ran into another room and
picked up a gun just as the second man burst into her house. He came
straight at her, and she fired the gun, striking him in the arm. The
wounded man ran from the house, shouting to his partner that he'd
been shot. The nefarious duo then ran off in opposite directions.
Police had the two 16-year-old suspects in custody within minutes.
