""A man who attempted to rob a father and son at gunpoint Thursday night was fatally shot after the father wrestled the gun away from him and fired five times, Sheriff Omar Lucio said. Francisco Antonio Moreno, 31, of Brownsville, fled the scene with an accomplice, but was found dead a short time later near a neighborhood in Harlingen, Lucio said. The shooting occurred after Moreno, Ramon Cardoza, 21, of San Benito, and an unidentified man attempted to rob a family off of Rabb Road near La Feria Thursday night, Lucio said. Lucio identified Louis Earl Dixon as the man that was physically assaulted by the men. Dixon told investigators that he and his 21-year-old son were approached by three men, wearing masks, outside of their home Thursday night." (03/26/11)
