How a Texas Teen's Deadly Shooting May Have Saved His Life – But One of the Two Thugs Who Broke Into His Home Wasn't So Lucky

"My son, trying to defend his home and himself, he discharged my firearm..."

When two thugs broke into a Houston home and found a teenager alone, they probably thought it would be an easy "job." What they didn't know was the 18-year-old would-be victim is the son of a Houston police officer and knows his way around a firearm.

The teen reportedly first called his dad, a veteran police officer, to tell him that two men were trying to get into the house. It isn't clear what the father instructed his son to do, but when the suspects entered the home the 18-year-old opened fire, fatally shooting one of them.

"He called me and told me about it…Not long after that two unknown suspects entered our home without permission. My son, trying to defend his home and himself, he discharged my firearm, striking one of the suspects," Ken Patmon, the homeowner, told KTRK-TV.

Patmon has been with the House Police Department for 12 years and works in the field training department, according to the report.

The cop's son is apparently planning to join the U.S. Air Force.
