TX: Homeowner Gets In Shootout With Suspected Car Burglar

A San Antonio, Texas man discovered someone that appeared to be trying to break into his car about 3:00 AM earlier this month. He went out to investigate and confronted the suspect who then pulled a gun on the homeowner. The homeowner then drew his own gun and shots were exchanged.

The suspect ran off but was later found dead by a police K-9 unit. The homeowner was uninjured. No word on any charges against the homeowner.

Nobody wants to allow someone to break into their car and the law does permit the use of reasonable non-deadly force to prevent someone from doing so. But what happens if the burglar breaking into your car is armed as was the case with this homeowner?

This is Texas. The homeowner will not be charged.

Actually, in Texas, it is legal to shoot an intruder on your property at night if you suspect he is stealing or vandalizing property. It is probably the only state with such a law.
