“They shot through the walls, through all kind of stuff in my room, sheetrock flying and hitting me, glass flying and hitting me … I thought I was going to die,” Brannon reportedly said.
Angel Galvan, Frederick Randle, and Farukur Siddique were all reportedly charged with felony burglary after entering the wrong home. Brannon said that the situation could have been avoided if the men had asked for Brannon’s name, KHOU 11 reports.
“You don’t go into people’s houses unless you are invited, right? It’s the most protected property in this country, in this state, by the constitution,” Harris County District Attorney Prosecutor Napolean Stewart said, reports KHOU 11.
The three bounty hunters were allegedly attempting to track down a man who skipped court after being charged with sexual assault of a child. (RELATED: Dog The Bounty Hunter Opens Up About Life Leading Up To His Wife’s Death)
