Fake Police

Three armed men posing as police officers tried to make their way into a home near Memorial Park but the homeowner fought back.

Police say that around 3am Monday, three men walked up to a home on Kiam near Arabelle and started banging on the front door claiming they were police officers. Someone in the home fired a shotgun at the men outside and then one of the men outside fired back.

This took place in Houston.

Exactly how do you tell the difference? I certainly don’t want to shoot police officers. I’m fairly sure that any police department is going to frown on that. And I don’t want 6000 Houston police mad at me.

But I also don’t want fake police getting in my house.
