A Houston homeowner opened fire on four armed suspects during an attempted home invasion on Friday night, marking the third time this family has been targeted since September.

According to KTRK, the home invasion — captured by the homeowner’s surveillance camera — occurred at 1 a.m. In the video, the suspects can be seen kicking in the front door and entering the home. The homeowner and his wife, a couple in their 60s, can be heard screaming in the background.

During the confrontation, the homeowner managed to grab his home defense firearm and open fire on the suspects, who then fled the scene.

Incredibly, KTRK reports this is the third time the family has been targeted by home invaders. The first incident took place on September 30. On November 20, they were victimized yet again. Police believe the same group of suspects were involved in all three home invasions.

“Is it a coincidence?” asked Officer E. Arjona with HPD’s Latino Squad division in an interview with KTRK. “It could be, but we haven’t been able to determine exactly why they are victimizing this family.”

As KTRK notes, the four suspects are described as being Hispanic males in their late teens to early 20s. They are believed to have been driving a dark four door sedan.
