Texas 17-year-old shoots, kills 2 suspects attempting to break into home

(The AEGIS Alliance) – Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has asked anybody who has relevant details to contact his office after a couple of male suspects who were apparently trying to burglarize a house on Friday evening got shot and killed by a teen wielding a shotgun.

According to a homicide release document, it revealed that at roughly 10:40 p.m., sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the city of Channelview, Texas in the 16000 block of First Street.

When deputies arrived on the scene they found a couple of guys who appeared to be dead from evident gunfire injuries on the yard at the side of the residence.

The two males were determined to be dead at that time by EMS employees.

Homicide and crime scene detectives were called in to investigate the matter.

The detectives figured out that the two victims, and also a third unidentified man, while equipped with firearms and dawning masks, had tried to burglarize a house inhabited by an adult woman, a 12-year-old young boy, and a pair of 17-year-old teenage boys.

One of those 17-year-olds fetched a shotgun and fired it numerous times that struck the two male suspects.

The 3rd suspect got away in a four-door sedan that was dark in color.

no other injuries were reported during the incident.

The facts about the case were shown by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office which advised the case be shown to a grand jury.

“The case will be presented to a grand jury. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact the HCSO Homicide Unit at 713-274-9100,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez wrote in a tweet.

  1. In nz you’d be charged with underage possession and use of controlled weapons, murder for each death, conspiracy for whatever the theorists at the police station are daydreaming about, and you’d be in prison for as long as it took to go to trial, then get a home detention sentence, after all the discounts. Finished and over entirely in 2 years. And while detained they’d let u take a completely irrelevant parenting or budgeting course as ur “rehabilitation into society” for bonus early parole points.

  2. Send him to jail for murder. Should never have had a gun in his hand in the first place… Who made him judge jury and executioner….
