Investigators said it all started when the man’s wife pulled into their driveway Tuesday night. Then the two armed suspects jumped out and tried to rob her.

First, they took her purse, and then they tried to force her into the house. However, that is when her husband showed up.

He heard the commotion from inside, grabbed his gun and ended up exchanging gunfire with the intruders.

Fortunately, the couple weren’t hit, but one of the suspects was hit in the head, police said. The other suspect took off running.

Police said the injured suspect was taken into surgery.
This article is also notable for the purely positive framing it puts on the defenders. No "taking the law into his own hands" etc.

There's an old expression. "There's a new sheriff in town!"

Ed Gonzales won the Harris County sheriff election in November 2016. Art Acevedo became the Houston police chief in November 2016.

Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Anther good example of why it's important to always be armed. Even at home.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
