KNOW YOUR COMPANY: Homeowner Shoots Home Invader In The Face Five Times, Later Learns It Was A Setup

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A homeowner fought back against an armed intruder after he tried to enter his home.

A couple was visiting the homeowner Friday morning and when they were leaving the home, an armed man tried to enter.

The homeowner quickly grabbed his pistol and opened fire on the suspect, shooting him five times in the face.

The suspect was transported to Memorial Hermann by Life Flight in critical condition.

Here’s where the story takes a turn.

Police chased down the couple, but were only able to arrest the man. As it turns out, the couple were part of the attempted home invasion. Their buddy, now shot in the face, was waiting outside for them to exit the home to stage the invasion.

It didn’t work out too well.

Reminder: Know your company. While it’s tough to always nail this down, it’s important to keep in mind that not everyone is always who they present themselves as.

Another reminder: Because of the above, never let your guard down.
