One parent learns the cost of not looking after their guns or their children:

Also there is an attempt to blame others for their own lax attitude - a rather sick attempt at a defence.

Isn't that murder with intent?

That's up to the Grand Jury to decide:
The homeowner, who was “fearing for his safety,” fired off “several” rounds toward the suspect because he thought his counterpart was reaching for a firearm, Gonzalez said.

The other individual who was with the deceased man was not hit by gunfire and is not facing any charges.

“The homeowner cooperated with investigators and provided a detailed statement about the incident,” Gonzalez said, noting the case will be handed over to a grand jury.

“Once the investigation is complete, the case will be turned over to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office for presentation to a grand jury,” the top cop said.

Well, having a gun to protect you doesn't work, indeed it can hurt you:
