An armed invader broke into a house in Harris County, Texas, and the resident shot him dead.

Around 11:30 a.m., a 60-year-old woman shot and killed one of two intruders who forced their way into her home through her garage, police say.

“Both were armed with pistols, she confronted both suspects,” Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Thomas Gilliland said. While the attackers fled, a woman armed with a handgun shot at them. One of them was struck. In her front yard, the suspect fell unconscious and died. A firearm was discovered near his body afterwards.

“It’s the state of Texas, if you’re going to go into someone’s home, you’re going to get shot,” said one neighbor. “That’s really how we are. That’s just Texas.”

Police are on the lookout for a fifth individual, who may have jumped over a fence to escape. The other suspect was able to flee by vaulting a fence, and police began searching for him right after. In the burglary, the homeowner was not harmed.

“Sorry that Grandma had to shoot to kill but what can home invaders expect? Women arm themselves today to protect themselves because they know if someone has bad intentions they aren’t in the mood to sit down for a cup of tea and talk civil talk! I am PROUD that this Grandma was smart enough to keep a gun around when she’s alone!” one person commented on Facebook.

“She did what she had to do and am proud of her !! Sometimes you just have to take your stand and make a believer out of some hard heads that think the world owes them a living. Hope they soon catch the other thug and [slam] him behind bars,” another person comented.

“We never have intent, but the out come would have been different if she didn’t have her gun. She be the one dead, or wanting to be dead after what ever.. killing another human is [definitely] something we dont get over. It changes you, good for her quick thinking, and prayers that she can over come the horrific assault,” another said.

“Grandma did a good job it just to bad she only got to kill one but hey she was protect her life and her things that she worked hard to get dum f**ks like that deserve it and I would of done the same thing good job [grandma],” another person said.
