Cass Cty. man kills suspected burglar

Authorities in Cass County are still sorting out the details surrounding an alleged burglary, where a suspect was fatally shot.

Cass County investigators say an Antioch, Texas man came home Wednesday afternoon to find a burglar inside the residence. The homeowner told police he grabbed a gun and found a woman running out the back door. He confronted her and another man in the back yard.

He called 911, telling the operator he was holding the pair until authorities arrived. By the time deputies got to the scene, some kind of altercation had taken place and the male suspect was dead from a gunshot wound.

Authorities have not released the name of the man who was killed.

The woman also at the house was last seen leaving in a white car.

So far no charges have been filed.
