A Texas homeowner in his late 70s fatally shot a man who tried to break into his home Thursday morning on the city’s far Northwest Side.
70-yr-old and his wife woke up to someone trying to break into their home. They warned the man to leave, but when he broke the door handle, the homeowner fired through the door hitting the man in the chest. The Police spokesman said, “He was really trying to make a strong effort to get into the house. They felt the need to defend themselves and their property.”
Neighbors said they hadn’t seen anything like this in 20 years because the area is so quiet. The neighbor said “They picked the wrong man because Bill was an ex-Special Forces lieutenant colonel”. Homeowners won’t face charges for shooting the attempted robber.
I guess the best lesson here is… before you break into someone’s home, make sure they’re not former Special Forces!
