HARRIS COUNTY - From KHOU TV and www.khou.com - A burglary suspect died late Thursday morning after he was shot by a homeowner who said he was defending his property.
The shooting occurred in northwest Harris County on Place Rebecca Lane just off Kuykendahl Road, according to the sheriff’s office.
Harris County Sgt. Robert Spurgeon said it was around 2 a.m. when the homeowner, 51, heard glass breaking in his condo. He went to investigate and found a man entering through a window.
The homeowner told deputies he warned the suspect to leave, but the man allegedly continued to enter the condo. That’s when the homeowner opened fire, striking the suspect in the head. The suspect was sent to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.
Deputies noted that the homeowner was defending his property and even has a Concealed Handgun License, but as per protocol, the case would be sent to a grand jury.
The suspect’s identity was not released, but deputies said the man was 22 years old.
