Dallas Homeowner Shoots Burglar

Dallas, Texas

From April 18, 2008 Fox News channel 4:
An Oak Cliff homeowner told police that he was awakened around 1:30 Friday morning by the sound of breaking glass.

The man grabbed a handgun and discovered two men inside his home in the 6100 block of Teague Drive, according to police.

One of the men was still holding a board that they had used to break the window.

Police said the homeowner started shooting and hit one of the suspects in the upper chest and jaw. That suspect is in critical condition at Baylor Hospital.

The other burglar ran from the home and has not been found.

The case will be referred to a Grand Jury, but investigators said the homeowner appeared to be justified in protecting his life and property.
