A teenager was killed when he tried to fight back against a pair of armed robbers. Police say a man and woman broke down the front door of a home on Marjorie near Knox in northwest Houston last night. They demanded property from the four people who were inside playing video games.

"One of the victims resisted during the incident and got into a scuffle with one of the suspects," said Sgt. Robert Torres with the Houston Police Department. "During that scuffle, the suspect was able to discharge her firearm."

The 19-year-old male was shot and killed. Police say he didn't live at the home. No one else was hurt. Police say the suspects ran off empty-handed.
