A Harris County, Texas, man shot a “heavily intoxicated” attacker who mistook the man’s apartment for that of his ex-girlfriend and was trying to break down the front door.
According to investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the drunk man went to the door of what he thought was his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and began banging on the door. He then began trying to kick the door down.
The person living in the apartment opened the door and asked the drunk man to quiet down and leave. The man then attempted to attack the resident, who shot him in self-defense.
