    Port A homeowner shoots burglar

    PORT ARANSAS A 23-year-old man was shot in the chest about 11:15 p.m. Thursday by a homeowner who caught the man burglarizing his home, police said.

    The 42-year-old homeowner confronted the intruder inside his home with a .22-caliber pistol, said Detective Mark Stokes, investigator for the Port Aransas Police Department. Police declined to release the home's location or the name and occupation of the homeowner because of possible retaliation, Stokes said.

    The shooting victim was conscious while being taken by Halo-Flight to Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial, emergency rescuers said. He remained in intensive care Friday in stable condition, Stokes said.

    Investigators will present information to the district attorney before arresting the suspect, Stokes said.

    A woman was also at home at the time of the incident, but was not involved, Stokes said, and the homeowner was not charged.

    By Texas statute a homeowner has the right to defend themselves and their property, he said.


    Can't say I agree with his choice of caliber, but it obviously got the job done. For once it is nice to not read the victims name and address.

    Good on Port Aransas authorities.

    the .22 obviously did the job and stopped the threat. Good for him.

    What's that old saying? "A .22 in the hand beats a .45 in the safe" I guess it's true.

    Good job on the PD not releasing his name.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
