Deputies: Armed robber shot to death during Rosharon home invasion

A home invasion robbery in a quiet Rosharon neighborhood turned deadly Tuesday, Nov. 15, after a family member who came to protect the homeowner fatally shot one of the suspects, sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies were dispatched to a home in the 5100 block of Apollo Ln around 8:40 a.m. to investigate reports of a robbery in progress, Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Lt. Varon Snelgrove said.

“The homeowner told deputies that two men wearing masks with guns kicked in the back door and demanded money,” Snelgrove said.

“As it happens, at the time of the break-in, the homeowner was on the phone with her son in-law who lives across the street, and when he heard what was happening he came to the house to protect her.”
