TX:Homeowner Shoots Suspected Backyard Burglar

Texas law allows for use of deadly force to protect property at night.

A homeowner in Dallas says he shot a man suspected of burglarizing his backyard shed.

The homeowner, who did not want to be identified on camera, said the family's alarm system went off around 5 a.m. Monday, alerting the homeowner to someone breaking into their storage unit.

The man, who said he has a concealed weapons permit, said he grabbed his .45 caliber gun, went out into the backyard, and discovered a man walking out of the shed with an edger and weed eater.

The homeowner said he told the alleged burglar to stop. That's when the alleged burglar dropped the equipment and jumped the fence to an alley. The homeowner said he fired several rounds and hit the man.
