    Even with warning signs, the BG still broke in.

    FORT WORTH — The two warning signs at Abel Sisneros home should be enough for trespassers.

    The sign of the front door says: “Warning. Nothing inside is worth risking your life for. Owners of this property are armed and highly skilled to protect life, liberty and property from criminal attacks.”

    And consider the sign on the front window: “No trespassing. Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again.”

    But Sisneros, 25, said Thursday he still had to shoot a man in his home early Thursday after the man broke down the front door and entered the home.

    “With all those signs, he still tried to get in,” said Sisneros, an AutoZone sales manager who goes to the firing range at least once a month. “I can’t believe it.”

    The man was identified as Sheldon Reece, 32, of Fort Worth, who suffered a gunshot wound to his knee, according to Fort Worth police reports.

    The shooting happened about 1:22 a.m. Thursday in the 1600 block of Edgewood Terrace South.

    Sisneros said he has lived at the house for the past six years without any major problems.

    Early Thursday, Sisneros sat in his bedroom and surfed through channels on his television.

    “I heard a light pounding on the front door,” said Sisneros, who was on his Christmas holiday break from work. He lives in the two-story home with his fiancee. “I wasn’t expecting anyone.”

    Sisneros said he grabbed his 9 mm pistol and stood at the top of stairs when the man broke through the locked front door and fell down.

    “He didn’t say anything,” Sisneros said. “I then just fired two shots.”

    The man groaned, then ran to the back of the house. He stayed in a hallway until police arrived.

    “He couldn’t get out of the back way and he knew I was still in the front of the house, so he was trapped,” Sisneros said. “When the officers arrived, they led him out the back door.”

    Initially, Fort Worth patrol officers seized Sisneros’ handgun, but they returned it a few minutes later after sorting out the details.
    Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.

    When it comes to some BG's - seems 'stupid is as stupid does'.

    some "bg's" are just stupid.

    What an idiot, the BG I mean. This was the proper response to someone breaking in your front door.

    Papa Scout, many folks can be highly trained and have mixed results in actual situations like that. It's not like being at the range, or even doing force on force training. I think he did great!

    It may sound wrong, but I can't help but think that if I was in the resident's position, when I saw the guy knock down the door and fall down, I'd have a hard time not laughing at him while he's down!

    Hope the BG doesn't sue! I'm sure someone would be willing to lawyer for him.

    True riversdaddy. None of us truly know how we'll respond in this situation. I hope I never find out personally.

    Keep Shooting...

    until the threat is stopped...
    The BG should not have moved from his fallen position...continued movement inside of the house should have call for more lead from the hand held 'automatic lead catipulting machine'...
