Man Shoots Invader Who Broke Into His East Dallas Apartment

posted on May 4, 2017

A man was flipping TV channels in his Dallas apartment early Monday morning when he heard a sound just outside the front door. That sound was followed by a much louder noise—the sound of a man kicking in the door and bursting into the room. That’s when the apartment-dweller grabbed his gun and fired.

Dallas police responded to a reported shooting at the Primrose Park Villas apartments around 2 a.m., where they found the intruder lying in a breezeway with gunshot wounds to the chest and thigh. The suspect was transported to Baylor University Medical Center in serious condition, but is expected to survive.

Investigators discovered the injured intruder also lives at the complex with his mother. The resident of the apartment was unharmed, and he will not be charged in the shooting as police confirmed it was a case of self-defense.
