HOUSTON – A man charged in connection with burglarizing Bun B's Houston home was expected to appear in court Friday.

Demonte Alif Jackson is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with the intent to commit another felony and burglary of a habitation. 

The judge assigned to the case on Friday advised Jackson’s defense attorney, Letitia D. Quinones that a grand jury issued three indictments against Jackson on Thursday.

Jackson’s bond was set at $120,000. His next court date is scheduled for July 8.

While the Houston-area rapper and his wife were victims of a home invasion, they didn't stay victims for long. The rapper pulled a gun to defend his wife and home, police said.

The rapper's wife answered the door, and a man forced his way inside with a gun and pointed it at her head, according to police.

The man tried to rob the couple, and Bun B's wife told him to take the Audi in the garage, according to police. Police said Bun B, who was upstairs in the home, heard what was happening and got his gun.

Bun B's wife told the rapper the man was in the garage. Police said Bun B confronted the man there and shot at him, and the man responded with gunshots of his own. 

The man managed to get away but showed up at Pearland Medical Center with a gunshot to his left shoulder, Houston police said. 

Jackson is now charged with two counts of aggravated robbery with deadly weapon and burglary.
