From the February 7, 2009 Waxahachie (Tex.) Daily Light:
FERRIS – The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting incident that occurred before noon in the 200 block of Newton Road near Ferris.
Sheriff Johnny Brown said the homeowners were in the process of moving when they returned to the residence to pick up another load of belongings. En route, they observed two male suspects coming out of the residence.
As the two suspects went to drive away in an SUV later identified by authorities as stolen, the male homeowner exited his pickup to ask them what they were doing.
The suspect vehicle then struck the homeowner’s pickup and the homeowner, who suffered slight injuries.
“The homeowner opened fire on them at that point,” Brown said.
The suspect vehicle then struck another vehicle that the homeowner’s wife had exited before going out into a field and coming to a stop.
“The passenger got out and ran. The driver-suspect was transported by air ambulance with gunshot wounds,” Brown said.
