Resident Shoots Intruder In Attempted Home RobberyCould someone ‘splain how the victim who didn’t resist is better off?
Police Search For Suspects In Separate Incidents
A would-be robber was critically wounded and an apartment resident died during two separate home robberies.
The first happened at an apartment complex in the 4500 block of Cedar Springs.
According to reports, three suspects forced their way inside a unit at the Tecali Apartments.
Officials said the resident jumped out of the window of his upstairs apartment and died at the scene.
His injuries were so severe police could not determine whether the man was shot or cut that badly from the broken glass.
The three suspects likely will face capital murder charges even if the fall killed the residents since the robbery was the reason he jumped, police said.
About two hours later and 20 minutes away in the 9400 block of Royal Lane, another man forced his way into an apartment.
This would-be robber was met with an armed tenant.
The alleged suspect was shot multiple times and transported to Baylor Hospital in extremely critical condition.
Texas law allows homeowners to use deadly force to protect themselves and their property. Officials would not confirm why this resident was taken away in handcuffs. No charges have been filed.
