Neighbors at Oak Leaf Village heard gunshots around 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Houston police said there was a home invasion at one of the apartments. Lila Pena’s husband, Javier Ortiz, got out his gun and fatally shot two of the men. “They said ‘the money, the money,’” said Pena.
Pena said her kids witnessed the whole thing, including her oldest child, 7-year-old Fernando Ortiz.
[72 yo] Jan Cooper of Anaheim said she loaded her .357-magnum Smith & Wesson revolver and called 911 when she saw the man jump over her backyard fence and attempt to break into the home through her sliding glass door, KTLA-TV, Los Angeles, reported Wednesday.
“They barged in guns pointed at us screaming get on the ground, where is your money, where is your money. And the next thing I know boom, boom, boom, boom,” said “Big John” who lives in the home and did not want to be identified.
One of the people inside the home fired shots, hitting at least one of the intruders, 24-year-old Aaron Antwan Harris.”
