Intruder shot at Kaufman County business

Investigators said an alleged intruder at a Kaufman County business was in stable condition Friday morning after the owner shot him.

According to Assistant Chief Deputy Troy Graham, the owner reported hearing someone inside his storage facility in the 1000 block of Everett Drive around 2:30 a.m. Robert Sanders grabbed his loaded rifle, walked to the front and confronted the suspected burglar.

He opened fire and struck the suspect, several times. Deputies found the wounded man lying just outside the door.

Sanders leases a storage unit at the location, and lives in the back of that unit.

At this time, no arrests have been made. Police say there are no plans to charge Sanders.

Stolen items from another nearby property were found in the victim's truck.
