Harris County, Texas – In this case, we have a defensive gun use with shots fired, but the shots weren’t fired by the homeowner. One of the suspects in a Texas home invasion accidentally shot one of his accomplices during an altercation with the homeowner.

According to local media sources,

Three men broke into the home, and the homeowner grabbed his shotgun to defend himself.

Authorities said the homeowner got into a scuffle with one of the suspects, and the suspect’s gun went off. The bullet struck one of the two other suspects who broke in.

The suspect who was shot is being treated for his injuries at an area hospital. However, the other suspects remain at large.

A neighbor responded to the sounds of screams and gunshots from the home and helped subdue the suspect who had been shot.

The homeowner did not suffer any injuries during the incident.

This is the 159th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Texas and the 1,227th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
