A woman's 80-year-old grandfather fatally shot her estranged husband after he tried to take their two children from the grandparents' house, Conroe police said Saturday. Brice Wade Boudreaux, 32, died Friday evening at the home on Silver Creek Drive in Conroe, police said in a statement.

The investigation was ongoing Saturday, and it was not immediately clear whether the grandfather would face charges. He was questioned by police and released.

According to police, Boudreaux's estranged wife and children have been living with her grandparents for about five months.

When Boudreaux arrived Friday and tried to take the children, the grandfather intervened and ordered him to leave. Boudreaux refused, pushing the man out of the way, the statement said.

The grandfather then allegedly retrieved a revolver from another room and placed it in his back pocket before again advising Boudreaux, who was aware the older man had a gun, to leave, police said.

As the two left the home out to the driveway, Boudreaux again pushed the older man and allegedly struck him in the chest area where he recently had a pacemaker inserted, police said.

Fearing for his life, police said the older man then allegedly shot Boudreaux once, killing him.

The grandfather is a hero for protecting his daughter, his grandchildren, and himself. The son-in-law was a criminal and deserved what he got!

To quote Freddie Mercury of Queen: "Another One Bites the Dust."

I have just read your posting. It was from Dec but still in pain that this happened. My brother in law is the one that you say, He got what he deserved. Let me complete this story for you.

He was over there to get his children for Christmas. His wife was not allowing it even though, they agreed in mediation for him to get the children. She was keeping them from him telling everyone he was a drug addict and alcoholic. His tox results came back negative. He was randomly tested at work for drugs, where he had been for many years. Also, the claim of self defense from the old man, well, his autopsy showed the old man shot him in the back from 30 ft and then two more shots up close. My brother in law was out by his truck near the road when he was shot in the back.
