TX: Resident Shoots, Kills, 1 of 5 Intruders
The residents in the house heard noises and hid in a closet, Gilliland said. When the would-be burglars came into their bedroom, one of the homeowners, a 40-year-old man, fired once through the closet door, sending the intruders fleeing into the night.
The deputies arrived to find the suspects gone and a trail of blood, but weren't able to find the wounded burglar at the scene or in nearby hospitals. When police finally stopped the suspects in a car in northeast Houston 6 miles from the burglary, one of the would-be home invaders had died in the back of the vehicle. His identity has not been released.
