Home Invasion By Fake Police Gets Two Suspects Shot. One Killed.

Home Invasion By Fake Police

An attempted home invasion in Texas, which resulted in the death of one suspect, has prompted authorities to search for two other suspects.

In Katy, about 30 miles outside Houston, “multiple suspects” dressed in body armor broke into a house just after 11 p.m. on Thursday.

For “unknown reasons,” the suspects “began shooting immediately” upon entering the home, with one suspect accidentally shooting his accomplice.

Among the three occupants of the home at the time of the suspected shooting were the homeowner’s two adult sons. The sons told KTRK that they were trying to sleep when they heard people identifying themselves as Houston police officers banging on their door.

In the course of confronting the suspects, the sons were met with gunfire aimed in their direction. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the one suspect may have inadvertently shot the other.

In an attempt to flee the scene, the wounded suspect dropped his firearm, which was picked up by one of the sons and used to shoot the other suspected home invader.

In an attempt to flee, the wounded suspect ran to a dark-colored getaway car being driven by a third suspect.

According to investigators, the home invasion was not random, and an investigation has been launched to determine the motive. Authorities are still looking for the two suspects, who fled.
