When they arrived, they located two men with gunshot wounds on the lawn along the side of the home.
Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to testimony from Sherriff Ed Gonzalez.
Investigators say the two men and a third unidentified suspect were armed and wearing masks trying to enter the home.
A woman, a 12-year-old boy, and two 17-year-old boys were inside the house during the attempted home invasion, but none were injured according to reports.
Deputies say one of the 17-year-olds got a shotgun and shot several times, striking the two intruders.
A third suspect fled the scene in an unidentified, 4-door sedan.
Recently, The Raging Patriot reported on a story of a woman who was showering, who then grabbed her gun and killed a would-be burglar in her home.
A Milwaukee Mom shot and killed a home intruder on Monday, August 15th. According to the unidentified woman, she was in the process of showering and getting ready for work when her 12 and 14-year-old children began screaming.
She ran to get her gun which was legally purchased ten years ago. She confronted the home intruder. The unidentified man was fighting with the family’s two pit bull dogs. Despite the dogs defending their children, the man kept coming according to tmj4.com.
Wisconsin and Texas both have Castle Doctrines. The doctrine comes from the idea that your home is your castle and a person should be able to defend their dwelling place where they feel safe.
Luster Law shared that:
The castle doctrine in Texas presumes that using force is reasonable and justified when another person:
- unlawfully and with force enters or attempts to enter your habitation, vehicle, or workplace; or
- attempts to remove you, by force, from your habitation, vehicle, or workplace;
- was committing or attempting to commit aggravated kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated robbery.
Recently, there have been many instances of a gun saving the lives of children and people in their homes. The most widely known that happened recently was when 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken stopped a would-be mass shooter at the Greenwood Park Mall.
He saved countless lives with his quick action. The Police Chief said this of Dicken:
“I will say his actions were nothing short of heroic. He engaged the gunman from quite a distance with a handgun,” Ison said. “(He) was very tactically sound as he moved to close in on the suspect, he was also motioning for people to exit behind him. He has no police training and no military background.”
Our Second Amendment right is so crucial to our nation and to each of us Americans, and we need to continue to highlight when a good guy with a gun saves lives with quick thinking.
