HOUSTON - Officials say two would-be home invaders in Channelview were killed overnight Saturday and a third remains at large after they were confronted by a teen inside armed with a shotgun.
According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, three men in masks tried to break into a home in the 16000 block of 1st St. in east Harris County near Channelview First Baptist Church.
The men were armed and inside the home were a 12-year-old boy and two teenage boys, both 17. One of the 17-year-olds, according to investigators, got a shotgun and fired it several times at the invaders.
Two of them were hit and pronounced dead at the scene by responding officers.
Meanwhile, the third took off in a dark-colored, 4-door sedan, and as of this writing remains at large.
No other injuries were reported, but Sheriff Gonzalez said the case would be presented before a grand jury, as an investigation into the incident remains underway.
