Preacher fatally shot with own gun while struggling with burglar

HARRIS COUNTY - by Andrew Horansky/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com


Deputies said a 69-year-old homeowner died after he was shot by his own gun during a scuffle with an apparent burglar.


The victim was later identified as Don Frazier, a preacher and writer who has made numerous TV appearances.



The crime happened around Friday 1:15 a.m. morning at a home on Amber Lake in northwest Harris County.


Sheriff's deputies said the man and his wife heard a noise downstairs in their garage. When the husband went down to investigate, somehow the burglar managed to take the homeowner's gun -- shooting him dead.


Deputies said they later saw the suspect, 30, walking near the victim's house. He had ditched the gun in a trash can but still had blood on his clothes.


The suspect was taken into custody but has not yet been identified.


According to his website, Frazier was known for spiritual books and songs.
