And in other news, Homeowner shoots suspect during home invasion
Quote:
A homeowner here shot a man who claimed he was with a gas company but tried to break into his home, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect was with another man who asked the homeowner where his gas meter was located Tuesday afternoon. The homeowner directed the two men to his backyard, but told deputies he was suspicious and grabbed a gun.

The suspects broke into the home and assaulted the homeowner, sheriff’s officials said, before the homeowner grabbed his gun and fired at the suspects. No one inside the home was injured.

One of the men was hit and the other ran but was later caught. The wounded suspect was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
As a general rule I wouldn't answer the door for uninvited or unscheduled people. Another DGU with no one dead.
