Three men are being held for a Palmview home invasion where an 11-year-old boy was shot defending his mother.

Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies told Action 4 News that it happened off Minnesota Road and 8 Mile Line between Palmview and Mission around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging coming from the front door.

She got up to check and she saw two Hispanic males men wearing masks and armed with handguns walking towards her.

She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men allegedly tried to force it open.

The masked man kept telling her to open the door and she would not open the door.

The woman told deputies that the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area.

Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers.

The woman waited, opened the door, saw that the suspects were gone and called 911.

Deputies found blood all over the floor and noted that the front door had been knocked down.

Paramedics took the woman's 11-year-old son to the McAllen Medical Center where he’s listed in stable condition.

But deputies told Action 4 News that a man with a gunshot wound to his neck ended up at the same hospital.

Investigators said nothing was taken from the home and that the wounded suspect was taken to a hospital in San Antonio for further treatment. He remains under guard.

Criminal charges are expected to be filed against him, if he survives.

Deputies said Border Patrol agents detained two Mexican nationals who were found in the area.

The two men are being questioned about the home invasion.

U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials told Action 4 News that they have filed immigration detainers against the two men.

Again, just shoot them

No need for immigration detainers, no chance for computer or clerical errors. Shoot 'em.

yeah, that shit's pretty dirty. after you make them clean your gun, you don't want to use white box cause you'll just have to clean it again. use something cleaner

All they need to do

is shoot them and stake em out on the border as a warning.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Excellent ideas

I'm with you guys. Hang their bodies from posts on the border.

UMC or Federal FMJ. White box has always been the most accurate of the Wal-Mart FMJ ammo

white box

I don't have any accuracy complaints as its plinking ammo, but I do think its dirtier than Federal. Not as bad as wolf and other russian ammo, but still pretty dirty. Bass pro sells some Winchester SXZ for about the same price as white box, and its cleaner. Its also has a lubox coating on the bullet so its easier on your barrel.

CCI Blazer

I like the CCI Blazer ammo better than Remington UMC, Winchester White Box or Federal American Eagle. For me, at least, it shoots (groups) better; it's cheaper (where I buy ammo); I don't have any problem cleaning after shooting it.

I buy it when its all I can find, or if I'm on a budget... I just like brass better than steel cases

in 9mm and it was the worst shooting shit I have ever used. I'm a damned good shot, not the best, but I don't miss often, and that crap was all over the place during an action pistol practice one day. It shot like shit in all three of my Glocks, but the wife's XD shot with it just fine. I guess every gun has its preferences, and every gun I've used so far has like the WWB more than the rest

Blazer

It's either aluminum or brass cased. The only one I've ever used is aluminum. It's cheapest and shoots well for me. Well, not always cheapest. Sometimes they're the same price.

collection, buy him a new bike or something, he's already cool with guns.
Second, we need to spend a little quality time with the undocumented fellows who were uninvited guests of the boy and his mommy and those who potentially could do such a thing...
