Burglars: Don't Put Victims in Their Gun Closets

When a home invasion "victim" suddenly emerges from a closet with guns literally blazing, the tables have officially turned. Three burglars stormed a Houston home on Tuesday afternoon, shoving a resident into a closet after giving him a sound beating. Unfortunately, they didn't know they placed him in the gun closet. After waiting for the right moment, the man emerged from the closet and engaged his attackers in a gunfight.

One burglar was hit in the shoulder and leg, prompting the other two to flee. The injured burglar attempted to join them, but ended up falling to the unforgiving pavement during his escape attempt. The victim was uninjured.
