A Texas minister was killed with his own gun as he tried to confront an intruder at his northwest Harris County home early on the 4th of July, reported KPRC-TV in Houston..
Just after midnight, deputies were called out to a home in the 4200 block of Amber Lake Drive in the Deerfield Village subdivision.
Investigators said the minister, 69-year-old Donald Frazier, and his wife woke up when they heard their generator turn on.
Frazier noticed the entry door to the garage was open so grabbed his gun and went outside to investigate. That is when he saw a man in his garage and the two began to fight.
Frazier’s wife saw the struggle and called 911, according to investigators.
During the struggle, deputies said the intruder, identified as Daniel Durham, managed to grab Frazier’s gun and shoot him with it.
Neighbors said they thought the gunshots were fireworks.
“It was about three or four hours into our sleeping and we heard some pops. It was real crisp. It sounded like a small-caliber gun maybe a .22,” neighbor Rick Soto said.
Frazier died at the scene.
