Dallas Homeowner Fights Off Armed Intruders In Shootout

posted on February 2, 2017

Sleeping peacefully in his Oak Cliff home, Texas resident Terry Morgan was awakened by a strange noise. A look at his surveillance camera revealed two men—one prying at the front door, the other armed with a large gun. 

But Morgan quickly readied himself to confront the intruders. “I immediately jumped up, grabbed my weapon, came here and aimed my weapon towards the door, because I thought they were on their way in,” he said. As the homeowner snuck a look through the front window, he made a noise that apparently startled the burglars. “So they started to shoot, BOOM! They were shooting as they were retreating.” 

Morgan returned fire at the group of would-be intruders, and saw five people jump into a car at the end of his driveway and speed away. “I don't want to shoot anyone's kid. What are you doing riding at 4:30 in the morning, trying to break into somebody's house? You are going to get killed,” Morgan concluded.
