For the first time ever, rapper Bun B and his wife Angela “Queenie” Walls opened up about their recent home invasion by a masked intruder.
“At the moment it was unreal because we had just made it home within 20 minutes,” Queenie told The Breakfast Club Wednesday.
Queenie, who called the incident “unreal,” said that she heard the doorbell ring and went to answer the door thinking it was a delivery person or her neighbor. It wasn’t. Instead, it was an intruder waiting outside with a gun when she opened the door.
A suspect, identified by law enforcement as Demonte Jackson, then allegedly burst through the door and began demanding valuables, Queenie recalled. He then held the gun to her head, and allegedly threatened to take her life if she disobeyed him.
Queenie said she offered up her luxury vehicle, an Audi, in fear that he would sexually assault her after eyeing a nearby bedroom. Shook, he accepted Queenie’s offer and tried to make off to the garage.
All of this was happening while Bun B was in the restroom. The rapper said it was clear what was happening downstairs in his home and he immediately went to grab his gun.
“I just ran and got the pistol,” he said.
However, by the time Bun made his way downstairs the intruder was in the Audi. The Houston rapper said he made off after him, and managed to catch up with him.
“I look in the car and I see his head and his body turns back towards me and that’s when I just let that thing go,” Bun recalled, adding that a shoot-out ensued. “I shot like five times…and I hit it again and let the rest of the clip go and he falls out of the car, throws his gun down, and starts pleading for his life.”
Bun B credits his wife for saving both of their lives, calling her a “hero.”
“Unfortunately I wasn’t the one that had to confront him in the moment—she was,” Bun added. “I’m so proud of her not only for how she handled herself, but…her only thought was to protect me, because in the moment her assumption is this person is coming to get me.”
“She [didn’t] know it was a random act [of violence] at the time, so she thinks this person is coming to kill me. So she’s like I need to hold this person here until Bun can get to the gun. And even if he kills me, I know Bun can kill him,” he told the co-hosts.
“She’s the hero because if she didn’t stall him out I [wouldn’t have] gotten to the pistol,” he said.
The 46-year-old rapper and his wife, who were both uninjured in the incident, have been together since 2003.
Jackson was arrested last week and now faces three felony charges.
