The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports:

A Wichita Falls man and his wife closed the liquor store they have owned 25 years like they normally do at 9 p.m. and drove home, only to immediately be faced with armed gang members invading their home through the garage, according to court documents.

The husband exchanged gunfire with two masked men, and his wife was shot in the leg, according to court records. The ensuing police investigation involved DNA from a shoe one suspect lost in the garage.

An affidavit for arrest warrant gave this account of the incident at the store owners’ home: A Wichita Falls police sergeant contacted an officer Feb. 10, 2018, about an aggravated robbery in the 1500 block of Sweetbriar.

The sergeant said someone had been injured by gunfire and transported to United Regional Health Care System. He asked the officer to respond.

The officer arrived and spoke with a husband and wife who own a liquor store in the 300 block of Seventh Street.

The wife appeared to have a gunshot wound in her left leg in the ankle/shin area.

The couple told the officer that they drove home that night in their truck after closing their store. The wife was the front seat passenger while the husband drove.

He parked the truck in the driveway of their home outside the garage.

The husband didn’t see anyone follow them home, but when they got there, he saw a car with its headlights on parked down the street from their house.

The husband saw the car drive in their direction “fast” so he walked in to try get the door open and waited for his wife.

Just as his wife walked inside the garage, two masked men walked in behind her, the husband told police.

“Get down, get down,” the gun wielding intruders yelled.

The husband told police he fired his gun at them, and they fired back.

The story also reports:

A Wichita County grand jury handed down an indictment against Dequavious Eugene Sanderson last week in connection with the home invasion, court records showed.

The 23-year-old Wichita Falls man was indicted on one count of burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit aggravated assault and/or attempted aggravated robbery, according to court documents filed Sept. 5.
