15 Gunmen Invade Texas Border Home, Shoot Mother And Child


Fifteen heavily armed masked gunmen breached the door of a Texas border home and opened fire without warning, injuring a 9 year-old boy and his 33 year-old mother. The incident took place in the early morning at a rural home near the city of Harlington. Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio stated that the gunmen kicked down the door and began shooting at  random.

“During the robbery the gunmen yelled out ‘policia policia’ which as we all know is the Spanish word for police,” Lucio said.

The barrage of gunfire injured the mother and her son, but the rest of the family were not harmed, Lucio said, classifying the woman’s injuries as minor, but the boy was still at the hospital, listed in stable condition.

After some investigations into the incident, it appears the men may have attacked the wrong house, as nothing was taken and they left as quickly as they arrived. Authorities are still looking into the identity of the men, who all seemed to have fled the scene in the same three vehicles they arrived in.

According to the police, the family involved is not believed to be connected to any criminal activity, and were just random victims of misinformation.

Texas border towns are subject to a different “breed” of criminal activity, that often involve gunmen with ties to many of the illegal drug cartels from across the border as they attempt to steal drugs or abduct innocent victims for human trafficking needs.

    There are unlimited scenarios to justify the need to protect ourselves, family and property. None if that should matter however, as the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights guarantees our right to keep and bare arms. Our forefathers saw this as so important that only the “Freedom of Speach” was guaranteed before it. Anyone who stands for gun control, stands against America!

    There is no Harlington, Texas. Sloppy work. Please try to be accurate and check your facts. That is what reporters do.

    first off, if you’re going to regurgitate an article at least make sure you’re information is accurate. it has already been pointed out that the name of the city is Harlingen, not Harlington. little thing called fact checking is a wonderful device that real reporters use. also, why not give credit or supply links to the local articles that reporters that did the actual footwork wrote? say, something like this: http://www.valleymorningstar.com/news/local_news/article_6e0839da-f986-11e4-b492-c3500dc3aa80.html.
    and now for another comment on here that seemed to take a ranting tangent and showed no concern for the victims in the article but just a need to try to push their own agenda, it’s “bear” arms, not “bare”. you are carrying or holding your firearms, not exposing them. and it’s “speech” and not “speach”. one is a word, the other is not. spell check on this site should have underlined that for you as it did for me letting you know that hey, you spelled that wrong! it’s things like this that make me struggle with which one is a priority, education or our Constitutional freedoms? they’re a very close tie as to me they seem equally important.

      and to catch myself, i saw a typo. i used “you’re” instead of “your” in one spot.

    • Yes; let’s use grammar and semantics to obfuscate the single issue – 15 armed thugs broke in to an American’s home, fired at random, and vanished.

  5. Harlingen not harlington
