mother takes on home invaders
Just after 9 p.m. on Friday the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a call for a shooting in the 18700 block of Mink Lank in the Mink Branch Valley subdivision just outside Magnolia. In a heavily wooded subdivision with homes nestled in the woods.
When the first units arrived they learned a mother and a 6-year-old child were home alone when three Hispanic males broke into the home. As they were starting to make their rounds in the house they were startled when, not knowing anyone was home were faced with the young mother holding a pistol. She did fire and thought she did hit one of the burglars but they all escaped. There was no vehicle seen and it appeared they left on foot.
Not long after a male arrived at Tomball Hospital who had been shot.
According to Detective Hahs with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office they have yet to determine if the male in the hospital is one of the three involved in the home invasion. Detectives spent most of the night on the scene searching the woods and photographing the scene.
Mother and child were uninjured.
If anyone has information on who the suspects are please contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers.
