Bar owner guns down suspected burglar
A man was shot to death early today in a confrontation with the owner of a north Harris County bar responding to a burglar alarm, sheriff's detectives said.
Kevin Anthony Miller, 22, was shot one time in the abdomen and was taken to Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center, where he died, homicide detectives said.
He was shot by the 58-year-old man who owns the bar, sheriff's reports show. That businessman is cooperating with homicide detectives, and the case will be referred to a grand jury for review.
The incident occurred at 5 a.m. when an alarm sounded at the Circle M Bar and Grill in the 15900 block of Telge near Louetta. Deputies arrived to find Miller shot in the parking lot and the bar owner armed with a pistol.
The bar owner told detectives he had responded to the alarm at his business, which is located just west of his home. He grabbed a handgun and encountered Miller coming out of the bar after it was burglarized. The two men had a confrontation in the parking lot, and the bar owner shot at Miller several times, hitting him once, detectives said.
