Intruders shot after Texas couple wrests shotgun

Thu Sep 4, 6:03 PM EDT
When two gunmen smashed through the glass front door of her suburban Fort Worth home, Kellie Hoehn didn't think twice.

The 34-year-old mother of two grabbed a shotgun that had been pointed at her face early Wednesday, starting a struggle that ended with one intruder killed with his own weapon and another in the hospital.

"I wasn't going to let them get to my babies," she said, recalling the moment when she pushed up the muzzle of the shotgun, pointing it away from her children's rooms.

Although the intruders told her to keep quiet, she screamed for her husband. She told her 12-year-old son, who was awakened by the sound of the shattering glass front door, to get his 5-year-old sister and hide.

"It was like a horror movie," her husband, 32-year-old Keith Hoehn, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I thought I was a dead man. We're fighting for our lives."

With Kellie Hoehn clinging to the weapon's muzzle, her husband tackled the man who held the shotgun. She knocked the intruder in the head with a jar candle, giving her husband a chance to wrest the shotgun.

By then the tussle had spilled out onto the front lawn. Keith Hoehn shot one of the men who had a pistol, police said. Wounded, that man ran away.

Then the intruder who initially had the shotgun charged Keith Hoehn.

Kellie Hoehn told The Dallas Morning News that she screamed at her husband, "Shoot him, shoot him, shoot him."

Her husband fired the shotgun and the man fell to the ground. Then the shot man lunged a second time.

"Well, I shot him again, and I guess that was it," Keith Hoehn said.

Dakota Scott Benoit, 20, of Richland Hills, was pronounced dead at a hospital. John Garland Pierson, 25, of Haltom City, was in critical condition and in police custody at the hospital.

"I am not happy that someone is dead," Kellie Hoehn said. "But I am glad that my family is alive."

Police said Pierson was shot in the left arm and the bullet pierced his diaphragm and other organs but his condition was improving. He will face charges of burglary of habitation with intent to commit another felony, police said.

Investigators say the couple were just defending their family and probably won't be charged.

if that is all the charges he faces, those prosecutors suck. i would start with a minimum attempted murder and move UP from there.

Homeskid was probably using dove shot in that thing otherwise both perps would have been bye-bye.

:evil:

That probably has no fucking place in that sentence at all.

They should be paying a bounty on these pieces of shit, not considering prosecuting the people who chose not to be their victims.

I thought there was some kind of fedral law on the books that if someone dies in the commission of a felony everybody takes a murder wrap that was involved in the crime??

Not trying to say the family should be charged with ANYTHING, but the punk that escaped with his life should get it tossed on him as felony murder in commission of a class A felony.

The perp will eventually be charged, possibly on the murder thing. The burglary charge is simply to keep him in custody, that will buy the DA time to dot t's and cross i's so a murder case will stick with no loopholes etc.

hope this helps,
