TX: Hangun beats Thrown Gas Can
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Investigators believe a northeast Harris County homeowner was well within his rights to shoot an intruder who allegedly assaulted him with a metal gasoline can.
Robert Dietz, 72, said he noticed his surveillance cameras had gone dark Friday morning so he went to his front porch to check. He found a man rummaging through a storage trailer he keeps parked under his carport. The lock had been sheared off with bolt cutters and the suspect was deep inside the trailer.
