No charges for neighbor in fatal shooting

........Sgt. Richard Fischer said the intruder, believed to be in his mid-20s, was “uniquely dressed” in a bulletproof vest and what was described as military-style attire when he showed up about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at the home in the 8900 block of Hambledon Drive on the West Side.
........As the intruder walked out of the home's garage, a neighbor next door who heard the commotion went outside and shot him at least once in the face.
........The shooter was defending his next-door neighbor, Zuniga said, adding that though the investigation is ongoing, he likely will not be charged with a crime.
Texas law allows deadly force against intruders and thieves to protect lives and property — even a third person's.
Deadly force is justified when immediate intervention is necessary to protect a third person, according to the Texas Penal Code.

Good for the neighbor! The BG was clearly threatening people with a gun and the neighbor defended himself and others.

Wow, dressed in a bullet proof vest...that guy meant business. He got what he deserved. I want that neighbor!
It's good to see that Texas has some common sense.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Wish Ohio was more like TX in some respects. We do have open carry, however, which they don't.
