    Burgular shot in home break-in in Slaton TX

    An elderly couple in Slaton TX encountered a burgular in thier home upon retuning there this afternoon. The burgular shot at the couple hitting the man and woman, both are in the hospital. The burgular was not so lucky, the gentleman returned fire killing the burglar. I pray the couple are ok.

    Sorry they got shot, hope they recover fully! However, he had the will and means to defend himself, and did so very well.

    The article says that the victim even knew the guy breaking in.

    It is a very sad commentary when you can't even trust people you know.

    I hope they they recover fully from their wounds.

    i'm glad the Fred Melcher is out of the hospital and is coming along well.

    Robert Holt failed the victim selection test. Now he is being eaten by worms and bugs.
