Attempted Gun Store Burglary Ends About How You’d Expect

posted on July 9, 2015

A tall, double-padlocked iron gate surrounds Class 3 Weapons in Houston, and concrete pillars encircle the store where a neighbor says a smash-and-grab attempt occurred just a few weeks ago. But unfortunately for the gun store’s owner, 52-year-old NFA dealer John Kleiber, none of this proved a deterrent when three burglars decided to break in Tuesday morning.

Kleiber, who started spending the night at his shop after several recent burglary attempts, was awakened around 2:30 a.m. by a commotion coming from outside. He grabbed his shotgun and rushed to the front door, where he found the suspects attempting to secure entry. Kleiber opened fire, hitting a 23-year-old male, who later succumbed to his wounds at a local hospital. It’s unclear whether the other two were injured, as they fled on foot and remain at large. While the investigation is ongoing, police say Kleiber has not been charged.
