Website, TMZ and Houston television stations report that, H-Town rap heavyweight, Bun B engaged in a shoot out with a masked intruder who attempted to steal his wife's car.

TMZ writes:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ around 5:45 last night, there was a knock at Bun B's door ... his wife, Queenie, opened it -- thinking it was a possible delivery -- to find a masked man holding a gun on the other side. The intruder demanded valuables, and Queenie offered up her Audi in the garage.

Bun B heard the commotion from upstairs, grabbed his gun, and confronted the intruder as he was getting into the Audi. A shootout between the two ensued, and the intruder ran away ... leaving his gun behind.

Houston's ABC affiliate says Houston police have identified the armed suspect as DeMonte Jackson. "Jackson fled on foot and later showed up at a hospital for treatment for a gunshot wound, according to HPD," the website reports. They go on to report that Jackson was treated, then arrested, and he now faces three felony charges.
