Some teens in Houston recently made a very dumb mistake. They approached a man in his garage and attempted to rob him. What they didn’t know was that the man was a Marine veteran who was armed.

Four teenagers try to rob a Marine veteran in Houston — he instantly makes them regret it
Four teenagers in Houston, Texas, learned a very difficult lesson Friday night after they attempted to rob a man sitting outside his garage. That man, it turned out, was a retired Marine.
Around 10:30 p.m. Friday night, four teenage males walked up to Alexander Borrego’s house, pulled out a gun and tried to rob him. Borrego told KPRC-TV that one of the teenagers stuck the gun to his head. However, little did they know, Borrego was both a Marine and armed with a pistol.
“One came alongside, through here, and next thing I knew I had a gun to the back of my head,” Borrego said. “They told me to get up, so, I stood up. My garage door was open so, my main concern was my family at that point.”
Borrego told KPRC his military training kicked in when the gun was placed against his head. He said he swiped the gun away and began firing at the boy with the gun, shooting him in the torso and leg.
Here’s a video report:
They probably won’t be trying that again.
