Texans are heavily armed. Homeowner shoots, wounds would-be burglar – Houston Chronicle
Silva [a spokeswoman for the Houston Police Department] said the homeowner, whose name has not been released, was with his wife in their guest house when they heard a commotion outside. A man, who was later identified as Shepherd, had climbed over a fence into the couple’s yard and was trying to break into the guest house.
Silva said the homeowner grabbed a gun and fired two shots at Shepherd, wounding him in the arm and leg. Shepherd then crawled beneath the homeowner’s parked pickup.
He came out from under the truck once the police arrived. He was taken to the local hospital, were he is under arrest.
