TX: Domestic Defense, Armed Homeowner Shoots Girlfriend's Ex
WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A deadly shooting that happened late Thursday night near Round Rock appears to be a case of self-defense, says a spokesperson with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office.
A homeowner on Angelico Lane told police that around 10:30 p.m., he was inside the house with his significant other when they found out her ex-boyfriend was in the backyard. The homeowner, armed with a flashlight and pistol, went to the back door when the suspect attempted to force his way into the home. Police say that’s when the armed man fired two shots, hitting the suspect, who later died.
