    Two Shot in Richmond, Texas

    Fort Bend homeowner shoots suspected thieves | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    RICHMOND — Two men were shot Sunday when they allegedly tried to steal auto parts from in front of a home near Stafford in Fort Bend County.

    The men, whose names were not immediately known, were shot about 2:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of Oakdale Court, said Fort Bend County Sheriff's spokeswoman Terriann Carlson.

    Carlson said the homeowner heard unusual sounds coming from outside his house and then saw a man approaching his front door.

    The homeowner got a weapon and told a woman in the house to call police.

    " In an attempt to protect themselves and their property, several persons inside the residence discharged their weapons numerous times, hitting one suspect in the head area and the second in the back," Carlson said in a released statement.

    One man was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital and another man was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Both were in serious condition.

    The identities of the homeowner and the others who fired weapons were not released.

    The case will be sent to the Fort Bend County District Attorney's Office and then will be reviewed by a grand jury.
    Hopefully this will end well for the shooters.

    Considering the time of day and Texas laws, it should be a quick "No Bill".

    2:30am, dark street and house, two intruders to the property. Though, there is no indication as to whether the intruders sought to gain entry, or merely appeared to be outside the door. (Don't know of the layout of that home in relation to its front doorstep.)

    Short of a situation where the victims shoot blindly through a door, I cannot imagine anyplace in the country would hang the homeowners in such a case. With the "Castle Law" in place, in Texas, it sounds like a clear and simple case. As it should be.

    No kidding.

    When I was younger and living with two roommates we had three shotguns, about a dozen WWII rifles and just shy of a dozen handguns between the three of us. We used to joke about what would happen given just these kind of circumstances.

    I'm glad no one undeserving of injury was hurt.
