A Houston homeowner shot two trespassers who had entered his property without permission and began assaulting people at his home early Saturday morning. The shooter hit both men and the shots ended up killing one of them, according to deputies.

The shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. According to police deputies, the two men, identified as 24-year-old Hashem Abu Amarah and 20-year-old Faisal Abu Amarah, walked up to the people who lived at the home and assaulted them. They said that at that point, the unnamed homeowner went inside, grabbed his gun and fired at both of the men.

Hashem Amarah died at the scene, deputies said. While Faisal Amarah was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition at the time of writing this article.

Investigators also added that the Amarahs had recently threatened the homeowner about a burglary report that was filed last year. Faisal Amarah was arrested and charged because of the report, but that case was later dismissed.

Deputies said the shooting is still under investigation.
