RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas (ValleyCentral) — The Starr County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two suspects after a man holding a pizza box and handgun forced his way into a person’s home.
The sheriff’s office said the incident occurred Thursday at about 9:38 p.m. at a residence on Navajo Street and Alvarez Road.
The deputies made contact with a 24-year-old man who said he heard loud knocking on the front door. When he opened the door, he saw a man carrying a Pizza Hut box and a handgun, according to the sheriff’s office.
The man with the pizza box then pushed the resident inside the home and a struggle began. According to authorities, several rounds were discharged during the struggle.
