Family ties run deep in Rosharon, Texas, where a man defended his mother-in-law during an armed robbery. While the woman was chatting on the phone with her daughter one day, two armed intruders kicked in the door of her home. The woman’s daughter, who lives across the street, told her husband of the commotion on the other end of the line. He then grabbed a shotgun and bolted across the street. There he found his mother-in-law had been forced into a back room and had a gun pointed at her. He exchanged gunfire with the two bad guys, striking one fatally in the chest. The other fled. The armed citizen faces no charges. (The Alvin Advertiser, Alvin, TX, 11/30/16)
