TX: Uncle to the Rescue, Shoots two, 1 Dead, 1 wounded
Investigators said four male suspects tied up the family inside the home using their shoelaces. Rene Garcia and his father were pistol-whipped to the point they were rushed to the hospital and given stitches to the backs of their heads.
“They took all our jewelry and all the cash our dad has,” said Garcia.
Garcia’s uncle heard the commotion. He grabbed a gun and confronted the suspect who was beating one family member in the backyard. The uncle shot and wounded that suspect.
When the other three tried to jump a fence, one of them turned toward the uncle with a pistol so he shot him, police said. That suspect died at the scene.
