By Click2Houston.com. Police said three men broke into an apartment, demanded money and showed a gun, but what they didn’t know is the resident also had a gun and shot two of them to death.

Neighbors at Oak Leaf Village heard gunshots around 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Houston police said there was a home invasion at one of the apartments.

Lila Pena’s husband, Javier Ortiz, got out his gun and fatally shot two of the men.

“They said ‘the money, the money,'” said Pena.

Pena said her kids witnessed the whole thing, including her oldest child, 7-year-old Fernando Ortiz.

“My dad took the gun out, then he shot the two,” said Fernando. “He’s a great hero.”
