http://www.valleycentral.com/news/story.aspx?id=402271 Three men are being held for a Palmview home invasion where an 11-year-old boy was shot defending his mother. Hidalgo County Sheriffs Office deputies told Action 4 News that it happened off Minnesota Road and 8 Mile Line between Palmview and Mission around 12:30 a.m. Friday. The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging on the front main entrance door. She got up to check and she saw two Hispanic males men masks and armed with handguns walking towards her. She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men tried to force it open. The masked man kept telling her to open the door and she would not open the door. The woman told deputies that the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area. Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers. The woman waited, opened the door, saw that the suspects were no longer there and called 911. Deputies found blood all over the floor and that the front door knocked down. Paramedics took the 11-year-old to McAllen Medical Center where hes listed in stable condition. But deputies told Action 4 News that a man with a gunshot wound to his neck ended up at the same hospital. Investigators said nothing was taken from the home and that the wounded suspect has to be taken to a San Antonio hospital for further treatment. He remains under guard. Criminal charges are expected to be filed against him, if he survives. Deputies said Border Patrol agents detained two Mexican nationals who were found in the area. The two men are being questioned about the home invasion. U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials told Action 4 News that they have filed detainers against the two men. This 11 year old has BALLS OF STEEL :thumbup: When people ask me why I own firearms, I point out things like this to them....although it's unlikely...it's possible. I wear a seatbelt everyday, even though I have no intention of getting into an accident.
