Australian man shot dead in USA following suspected home invasion

PHOTO: A father was shot to death by intruders inside his home where his wife and two small children were sleeping overnight in Fort Bend County, Texas, Oct. 16, 2019.

In 2015 Mr Estorffe met the love of his life Angeleanna.

A neighbour ran into the home in a bid to resuscitate the young father, but it was too late to save him.

Mr Estorffe's sister, Paige, toldBrisbane Timeson Friday morning she was about to board a flight to the U.S. to provide much-needed support to Angeleanna. "They have been deprived of a great father & loving husband", the campaign description read.

Police also canvassed the neighbourhood and checked for any CCTV footage that may have captured them. Detectives are following up surveillance camera footage and reports of a vehicle seen speeding away from the scene.

It isn't known if the killing was random or a targeted attack.

"It's a little unusual to have, not saying it doesn't happen but it's a little unusual for guys that are wanting to break into a home to steal a television or something to break into a house at midnight", said Nehls.

"It's pretty tough, but you know what, we're managing, we've got to get there and help Ange and the grandkids".

Local Sheriff Troy Nehls said it's a tragedy.

Police said Mr Estorffe woke up to the sound of glass breaking and got out of bed to investigate, which is when he came face-to-face with the intruders who shot him.

Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $25,000 reward for information that might lead to an arrest or charges filed in this case. "A father of two small children, breaks your heart". He is a true hero for protecting his family.

Mr Estorffe played a season of college football for Southern Virginia University in 2012.

According to his player profile on the university's website, he played six games as a punter.

Brenton Estorffe, 29, was killed after he confronted home invaders at his home near Houston in Texas.

The couple married and settled down in the small town of Katy, west of Houston.

He was working at a auto rental agency but hoping to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL.

Kimberley Patele, who lives nearby told local TV station KHOU that there are rarely issues in the area.

'I can't even imagine what the wife is going though right now, ' she said.

"Most individuals who want to commit a burglary do it when people are not at home, when they are working", he said.
