HOUSTON (FOX 26) — Rapper and entrepreneur Bun B and his wife Queenie survived a home invasion attempt after he ended up in a shootout with the masked robbery suspect.
Queenie Freeman tells police she heard the doorbell ring and answered it, expecting it to be a package delivery. Instead, the suspect forced his way into the home demanding money and valuables. Queenie immediately told the robber to go into the garage and take their vehicle.
Bun B, whose real name is Bernard Freeman, was upstairs when the robbery suspect entered the home. He grabbed his pistol and confronted the suspect in the garage.
The suspect and Bun B fired gunshots toward each other and the suspect fell out of the vehicle.
After the suspect ran down the street, Bun B held him at gunpoint and pulled off the suspect's mask.
Police say the suspect was able to break free from Bun B and ran away, ending up at Pearland Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the left shoulder. The suspect remains in the hospital.
The Houston Police Department says the suspect will be charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and burglary of a habitation.
An attorney for Bun B says Queenie is very upset because the suspect pointed his weapon at her head.
