A southwest Houston, Texas, homeowner was asleep on the second floor of his home the night of March 3 when he heard the sound of glass breaking. He armed himself before investigating. An intruder was allegedly making his way up the stairs when the homeowner saw him and fired a shot, striking him in the neck. The intruder ran out and started knocking on nearby doors, yelling that he had been shot. He collapsed a few doors down and was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Neighbors reported that the intruder had been trying to gain access to other homes before the incident, as well, and had caused some property damage. The homeowner was not expected to face any charges. (, Houston, Texas, 3/3/22)

On the evening of March 4, a female homeowner in Longview, Texas, called 911 to report having shot a burglar. Upon their arrival, the woman told deputies she ordered the man to leave her home, but he refused. Fearing for her safety, she shot the alleged burglar. The wounded invader was taken to a nearby hospital and charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault. Sheriff Brandon Fletcher of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office credited the homeowner for her actions: “This entire incident is an excellent example of the importance of our Second Amendment. I am thankful the homeowner was unharmed but also thankful the suspect in this episode will now face his consequences through the judicial system; it could have ended a lot worse.” (, Tyler, Texas, 3/7/22)
