A Texan man put a burglar in the hospital Monday after he harmed his brother and attempted to rob his home.
According to police, at approximately 2:25 a.m. Monday morning, the homeowner’s brother heard a knock on the door. He asked who was there but received no response. He then heard another knock and a number of gunshots before the door was kicked in.
The homeowner’s brother crawled to the kitchen but was pursued by one of the invaders. The man beat him with the butt of his gun.
All the commotion caused the homeowner to wake up. He went into the kitchen to find a stranger attacking his brother.
He quickly ran back to his bedroom to tell his wife to call the police. He then grabbed his own firearm before going out to help his brother.
The homeowner struck the attacker in the back with his first shot. Police say the injury was non-life-threatening.
Police have yet to find the other intruder.
