Houston, TX – Bun B and his wife Queenie experienced quite the scare on Tuesday (April 23) night when a masked intruder attempted to break into their Houston home. According to KHOU, the UGK legend was forced to shoot the man who had pulled a gun on Queenie as she answered the door.
TMZ reports the intruder demanded valuables, so Queenie offered her Audi. But before the suspect could make his escape, Bun rushed down the stairs and a shootout ensued. The intruder fled the scene by foot, leaving his gun behind.
Statik Selektah, who recently collaborated with the Houston Hip Hop staple on the TrillStatik project, was immediately impressed by Bun’s resilience and explained he was back to business shortly after the confrontation.
“I was just blown away that during and right after he was so focused,” Statik tells HipHopDX. “We were back talking about album promo and videos like 10 minutes later like nothing happened. The cops were there and he was calm, talking about album stuff. Dude is one in a million.
“Upmost example of what a man does in that situation. Him and his wife have a bond that everyone should envy.”
The seasoned producer also shared an Instagram post about the incident.
“You got no clue how stressful yesterday was,” he wrote in the caption. “To happy my big bro & his wife are ok. Trill OG x 10000. Handled what he had to. #trillstatik.”
The suspect later showed up at the hospital for treatment and was ultimately arrested at the hospital.
He was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery with a weapon and one count burglary.
