The man who police say shot an intruder at his West Mary Jane Drive home on Tuesday took on four burglary suspects, according to an affidavit for arrest.

Mansu Lau Knox Jr., 19, Shemar Keon Lee, 19, and Hunter Riley Flores, 19, were arraigned Friday on a charge of burglary of a home with the intent to commit a theft by Justice of the Peace Claudia Brown.

Markus Koven Smith was shot, according to the affidavit.

Lee and Knox dropped off Smith at the hospital and were detained by police as they walked away, according to the affidavit. Flores was the getaway driver.

Police spoke to Smith at the hospital. When officers spoke with Flores, he gave them permission to search his iPhone, according to the affidavit. In text messages, Flores and Lee discussed plans to rob someone of marijuana and other drugs, according to police.

The resident of the home fired through the door after he heard glass shatter. When police arrived, they found evidence of a forced entry to the home and broken glass by the door, according to the affidavit.

Lee, Flores and Knox Jr. are all in Bell County Jail. Bond was set at $30,000 for each suspect.

Also arraigned in an unrelated case was Michael Allan Grosz Jr., 30, on a charge of harassment of a public servant. He is in Bell County Jail; bond was set at $20,000.

I would be happy to provide you with some marksmanship lessons. A burglar in a body bag commits no more felonies.
