Texas Man Shoots Home Invasion Suspect

A Garland, Texas homeowner is fine after shooting a home invasion suspect who had burst through a window in his house while he slept in another room.

According to police reports, the homeowner was awakened by the sound of glass breaking. “The homeowner retrieved a pistol and found a male subject climbing through a broken window into his living room,” Garland Police Department spokesperson Joe Harn said in a press release. 

Fearing for his safety, the homeowner fired one round at the intruder, who immediately fled. He later showed up at an area hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound, but didn’t survive. At the time of this posting, the homeowner had not been arrested or charged.
