Brenton Estorffe

Brenton Estorffe's murder remains unsolved.

KATY (Covering Katy News) - An emergency 911 recording confirms that Brenton Estorffe acted heroically before being shot to death last week at his home in the 6900 block of Glen Rosa Drive in Katy, Fort Bend County.

Brenton and his wife Angeleanna were in bed when they heard the glass in a rear door shattering. The 911 call happened shortly after midnight on Wednesday morning.

“I just heard glass shattering and then my husband jumped up and took off after them and then they just started shooting,” Angeleanna told the 911 dispatcher.

Brenton died protecting his wife and two young children.

Angeleanna told the dispatcher that one of her children was in the room with her, and the other was in another bedroom.

Angeleanna was initially scared to go to her husband, not knowing if the gunmen were in the house. The dispatcher, wanting to know if Brenton was still alive, encouraged Angeleanna to check on her husband and she complied.

“Oh my God. I think he’s really hurt. Baby, are you OK? Babe, are you OK?” she says to her husband.

“Can I call my neighbors? Is there anything I can do?” she asked the dispatcher.

“I’m sorry I have two kids in the house, I don’t know what to do,” Angeleanna says. “How long before the cops are here? I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. I’m so sorry.”

The shooters took off and have not been found. A neighbor’s surveillance video shows a car leaving the neighborhood at about the same time of the shooting. The video also allowed investigators to get a basic description of the suspects.

The first suspect is a male, approximately 5 feet, 11 inches tall, dark skinned, and was wearing a dark colored hoodie.

The second suspect is a male, approximately 6 feet tall, slender build, dark skinned, and had short hair.

Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers has raised a cash reward to $25,000 for anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of the suspects.
