Fatal Home Invasion: Man Reportedly Kills Family Members, Believing Them to Be Burglars

Bryan J. Fernandez Hernandez, inset, is accused of killing his mother, sister, and brother-in-law in Houston before reporting the family members as intruders to the police.

A man claimed to be defending himself during a house invasion when he told Texas police officers that he had shot three people dead.

However, according to the officers, they soon discovered that was a deception because the victims were his relatives who were lodging with him.

According to a news release, Bryan J. Fernandez Hernandez, 27, reported a house invasion at his residence in the 10500 block of Hammerly Boulevard to Houston police just after three o’clock on Saturday. He said that inside his flat, he had shot the three alleged robbers. When police entered, they discovered a male and two women dead.

Hernandez told detectives the same account about the home invasion, saying he shot the three victims to defend himself. However, police claimed that “further investigation and evidence from the scene” showed there had been no such house invasion and that he had actually killed his mother, sister, and brother-in-law.

Leonor Hernandez, his 65-year-old mother, shared the house with him. Prior to the incident, his sister Karen Herrera, 43, and her husband Thomas Kupriakov, 38, had been visiting, according to the police.

Hernandez is currently charged with three charges of capital murder.

“The story about the home invasion is untrue. According to Carlos Flores, the suspect’s half-brother, “My mom, sister, and her husband were all executed in their apartment,” local ABC affiliate KTRK said.

Since last year, Hernandez had apparently been the subject of two prior police responses to the house in Houston, both concerning mental health issues.

Hernandez is being held without bond at the Harris County Jail. The 24th of July is his next scheduled court date.
