Homeowner shoots intruder who was being pursued by police
A man being pursued by Houston police officers Wednesday afternoon was shot by a homeowner in the 9800 block of Benning.
He was wounded in the leg, said Sgt. M. Peters of the HPD Homicide Division.
"He had forced entry into a house in the 9400 block of Spellman, which is the adjoining street, and they chased him out of their house into the the neighbor's backyard," Peters said. "The suspect then made an overt move toward his pocket, and fearing for his own safety," the homeowner shot him, Peters said.
A resident of the 9400 block of Benning said the residential neighborhood near Beltway 8 and West Bellfort is usually quiet. The resident said about a dozen Houston police officers, and a police dog were chasing the man. He ran through about six yards, breaking through some wood fences.
"He was just somebody running from the police, over nothing and he caused all this trouble," Peters said.
