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."
