Miguel Antonio Valencia-Mejia, 33, Bayou Body Count No. 301
A man who was attempting a home invasion was shot to death by one of the residents, Houston police say.
Miguel Antonio Valencia-Mejia, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges have been filed.
Police say a woman knocked on the door of an apartment in the 8600 block of Broadway about 10:50 p.m. Thursday, and then hid. A woman answered the door and, police said, Valencia-Mejia "grabbed the woman's hair and pointed a pistol at her head. A male resident then exited the bedroom and, fearing for his girlfriend's life, shot the suspect one time with a rifle."
Police are still looking for the woman who knocked on the door. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the female who knocked on the door is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
