You would think by now that the bad guys would figure this out.
[Doug Adolph, Sugar Land Police Department spokesman,] said the resident, who has not been identified, was asleep when he heard his dog barking.The resident stepped over the guy - who had fallen down - and called 911. While he was on the phone, the would-be-bad-guy got up and ran.
The resident woke up, grabbed a pistol near his bed and went to the front room.
He opened the front door but saw nobody.
When he closed the door and turned around, he spotted a man near him in the apartment.
The man rushed toward him. Fearing for his life, the resident fired once, hitting the man in the chest, Adolph said.
A man with a gunshot wound to the chest was picked up later at local hospital.
Self-defense is a human right, and in Texas it is your legal right. [via [KABA]
