Teen shoots, kills 2 would-be robbers
02:46 PM CST on Thursday, December 28, 2006
An overnight home invasion robbery attempt in northeast Harris County ended in a hail of gunfire that left two suspects dead.
Investigators said a 17-year-old was home with his cousin when four armed men kicked in the door and started shooting.
The teen pulled out a shotgun of his own and fired back at the suspects, killing two of them.
Two other suspects were later caught.
The 17-year-old asked to not be identified.
“Truthfully, it was either them or me, regardless of who was on the other side of that door or whoever kicked my door down, it was either him or me,” he said. “I’m thankful to be standing here today. I thank god.”
Authorities said at this point they are not planning on filing charges against the teen.
