The Houston firefighter that was shot in killed Monday night has been identified.
Police say 27-year-old Samuel Keen was shot and killed while trying to enter the home of his next door neighbor. The 64-year-old woman says she heard someone trying to get in her home in Montgomery County around 9:30pm Monday night.
She got her pistol and yelled at the person outside, warning them to leave and that she had a gun. That's when she fired two shots through her front door, hitting Keen. The 4-year-veteran of the Houston Fire Department was transported to Ben Taub where he was pronounced dead.
Police says friends spent the afternoon with Keen drinking at a bar for St. Patrick's Day, and say Keen took a cab home.
