A Houston, TX resident was caught off guard when 3 men, at least one of whom was armed, kicked in the door to the home he shared with his parents in broad daylight.

The violent men roughed up the resident and placed him in a closet while they ransacked the home.

What the suspects didn’t know – that closet is where the homeowner keeps his collection of handguns.

The resident armed himself and went through the house, where he encountered one of the suspects.

The two exchanged gunfire which resulted in the suspect being shot twice, but he was still able to escape.

He ran down the street and collapsed nearby. The other 2 suspects escaped in an old Chevy Tahoe.

Police say the suspect will survive and will be charged after he is treated.

A neighbor said there had been other home invasions in the area recently.
