Texas Man Guns Down 3 Family Members, Lies to Police That They Were ‘Home Invaders’

A Texas man has been charged with capital murder after he gunned down three family members and then called 911 to say he’d shot three burglars in a home invasion.

Houston Police have not yet released the identities of the three victims — a 38-year-old man, a 43-year-old women, and a 65-year-old woman — but said the older woman was a family member who lived in the apartment and the other two were family members who had been staying there for several days.

The suspect, Bryan J. Fernandez Hernandez, 27, called 911 just after 3 p.m. on Saturday, identifying himself as the tenant in the apartment. When police arrived, he admitted shooting the “three home invaders.”

Investigators soon learned, however, that there had been no home invasion and that Fernandez Hernandez had shot and killed three members of his own family and then lied to investigators in the 911 call.

He was detained and subsequently arrested. No further information was released.
