A 40-year-old woman, identified as Margarita Villalon, was killed and her teen sons attacked at their Baytown home Monday when four men broke in during an attempted robbery, police said.

The two teens were awake and playing video games around 1:45 a.m. when the group forced their way into the home in the 1600 block of Alabama Street, Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris said.

The teens and attackers scuffled, waking up their parents who then went to investigate the commotion. During the confrontation, one of the attackers fired a gun and shot the 40-year-old mother. She was killed, Dorris said.

The suspects fled and Dorris said two people, who he identified as persons of interest, were later taken into custody in the same neighborhood.

“One of the teens thought he might have recognized the suspects, which led us to these two people,” Dorris continued.

The woman who was killed was not immediately identified.
