He suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process. Man suspected in several break-ins shot by homeowner
You could also file this under “Texans are still armed, home-invaders are still getting shot,” or “if you break into homes you will eventually find an armed homeowner.” They both apply in this case.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the intruder took a brick from the landscaping outside the home, and hurled it through the window of the front door.
The homeowner heard the glass shatter and grabbed his gun.
The guy who got shot had apparently stolen a 9mm handgun from a pickup truck earlier in the evening. (That gun has now been returned to its rightful owner.)
