    Grand jury decides shooting not criminal

    Grand jury decides shooting not criminal

    By Phillip Yates
    phillip.yates@amarillo.com



    A Potter County grand jury Thursday declined to indict a man who shot a teenage boy who was reportedly trying to break into his car in May.
    The grand jury no billed Michael Mckay, whose age was unavailable late Thursday, who shot at teenagers who were trying to break into his car May 11, said 47th District Attorney Randall Sims.

    "The grand jury has found no wrongdoing on the part of Mr. Mckay," Sims said.

    A caller in the 1100 block of South Carolina Street told police about 2:40 a.m. May 11 that a 15-year-old boy had been shot, reports show.

    At about the same time, in the 3100 block of Southwest 15th Avenue, Mckay reported that three people tried to break into his car, reports show.

    Mckay told police that he shot at the trio, and police were able to link the shooting report and the burglary, according to police reports.

    The teen was hospitalized and underwent surgery the day he was shot. He has been released from the hospital and is recovering, Sims said.

    Sims has previously said Texas law specifically gives a person the right to use deadly force against someone in the act of a theft at nighttime, when that person believes there's no other way to recover that property or keep it from being stolen.

    But Sims stressed that the defense statute for protection at night is very limited and that a person could end up getting indicted very easily if they are outside of the statute's limitations.

    The teenager, along with the two other people connected with the burglary, have had charges filed against them in connection with the alleged May 11 break-in. All three have also reportedly implicated themselves in 40 other break-ins, Sims said.

    If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

    64Z,
    I've known this DA since I was a young officer and as a Chief of Police. Swell guy and were lucky to have him for a DA.

    I hope to relocate to the South in a couple of years. Texas already was high on my list, it's now moved up another notch.

    yep, here in Texas....
    9.41. PROTECTION OF ONE'S OWN PROPERTY.
    (a) A person in
    lawful possession of land or tangible, movable property is
    justified in using force against another when and to the degree the
    actor reasonably believes the force is immediately necessary to
    prevent or terminate the other's trespass on the land or unlawful
    interference with the property.
    (b) A person unlawfully dispossessed of land or tangible,
    movable property by another is justified in using force against the
    other when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the force
    is immediately necessary to reenter the land or recover the
    property if the actor uses the force immediately or in fresh pursuit
    after the dispossession and:
    (1) the actor reasonably believes the other had no
    claim of right when he dispossessed the actor; or
    (2) the other accomplished the dispossession by using force, threat, or fraud against the actor.

    9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is
    justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or
    tangible, movable property:
    (1) if he would be justified in using force against the
    other under Section 9.41 (actor has lawful possession of property); and
    (2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the
    deadly force is immediately necessary:
    (A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of
    arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the
    nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or
    (B) to prevent the other who is fleeing
    immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated
    robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the
    property; and
    (3) he reasonably believes that:
    (A) the land or property cannot be protected or
    recovered by any other means; or
    (B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
