Woman Shoots At, Terrifies Intruder - Houston News Story - KPRC Houston
Good on the homeowner for being prepared, good on the media for not releasing her name. The story would have had a happier ending if the intruder had been caught, one way or the other.FRIENDSWOOD, Texas -- Police said a woman shot at an intruder, scaring him directly through a glass door.
Officers with the Friendswood Police Department said they responded to a residence in the 400 block of Regency Court after a homeowner shot at a man that had broken into her home.
The woman said that at about 11:15 a.m. on April 12, she awoke to a loud noise followed by her alarm system sounding. She then heard footsteps going up to her second floor.
The woman said she grabbed her pistol and walked into the living room where she saw a man standing in her house. She fired a shot in the man's direction, which sent him running through -- and shattering -- a glass door as he fled the scene.
The homeowner was not hurt.
The intruder was described as a dark skinned black man, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt with white lettering, dark shorts and dark colored tennis shoes. He was clean-shaven, had a short hairstyle and appeared to be well groomed.
Officers said they searched the surrounding neighborhood and businesses but were not able to find the man. They said the investigation is ongoing.

She sure did get a good description. I wish she would have focused more on her sights to assist LEO in catching him, but at least she was not hurt.
