Two teenagers attempted to rob and carjack the wrong family. The incident was caught on video footage available below.
An armed Texas dad shot and injured two 16-year-olds who allegedly crept up behind the vehicles as the family was arriving at their home in Houston.
The teenagers attempted to open the car’s rear door where two infants were seated — both only 1 year old. The mother was seated in front.
The father fired several rounds and hit both suspects. His wife drove off in an attempt to get away.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the father feared for the safety of his family. Watch the clip below:
Both suspects are said to be stable and in fair condition.
