From the January 21, 2009 Houston Chronicle:
One man was killed and another ran for his life early today after they broke into a northwest Houston apartment and were met with gunfire from one of the residents, police said.
Detectives this morning were trying to identify the man who was killed by a shotgun blast about 3:15 a.m. at the Shadow Creek Apartments in the 7500 block of Pinemont near Hollister.
The two men who live in the ground-floor apartment told officers they were preparing to watch a movie when they heard a loud noise. Their front door was suddenly kicked open and two men burst into the apartment, one of them holding a revolver, police were told.
Both residents grabbed shotguns and one of them fired, killing one of the intruders while the other ran away.
Police said the residents did not know the attackers. It was not immediately clear why the men targeted that apartment.
