TX: Suspect Shot by Homeowner; Police explain the Homeowner was the Victim

"We have such friendly nice people in this area, and so, this must have been an intrusion as they say," Doug Taylor, the neighbor said. "Because we are just so settled and quiet here."

 When police arrived, they found the Cruz on the bathroom floor in a large pool of blood. Responding officers were able to save his life by using a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.

Cruz was taken to a Beaumont hospital by ambulance and is expected to survive their wounds.

Police said the homeowner acted under Texas law and will not face any charges.

"Even though they are the ones who shot the suspect, they are still the victim," Beaumont Police Spokesperson Haley Morrow said. "The suspect is the one who broke the law and committed a crime and as a result, he was shot."
