    GOOD: Homeowner Defends Himself - Missouri City, TX

    Police: Missouri City man shoots would-be burglar | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    MISSOURI CITY A man watching TV grabbed a pistol and wounded one of two armed men who forced their way into the house in an apparent robbery attempt, police said.

    The wounded man, Darrall E. Houston, a 41-year-old ex-convict, collapsed across the street from the one-story home in the 1600 block of Grand Park near Quail Feather.

    He was taken to Memorial Hermann-The Texas Medical Center, and his wound does not appear to be life-threatening, said Missouri City police Capt. John Bailey.

    The other intruder fled and is being sought.

    Bailey said detectives are looking into the possibility the incident was drug-related.

    The shooting will be referred to a Fort Bend County grand jury without charges, Bailey said.

    "It was very clear that the suspects illegally entered the residence," he said. "It is very obvious the shooting occurred inside the residence. There is no question about that."

    Bailey said Quentin Durisseau, 27, was in the living room about 11 p.m. Tuesday when two men kicked in the back door.

    "There was an exchange of gunfire from the suspects and the resident," Bailey said.

    Durisseau declined to comment about the shooting.

    Meanwhile, public records show the wounded man, a resident of Houston, was convicted of aggravated robbery in Harris County in 1987 and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was paroled in 1992.

    Bailey said that before the ambulance arrived, witnesses saw the wounded man put something into the storm sewer.

    "We looked, and we found a gun; we found a black ski mask, and we found gloves," Bailey said.

    Officers found that the .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol had been stolen in Houston.

    The wounded man has given police different stories about what happened, Bailey said.

    "At first, he said somebody drove by and shot him in the park. He is not being cooperative," Bailey said.

    Durisseau told police he did not know the intruders.

    "This guy (Durisseau) who shot at them was scared half to death," Bailey said. "But I think he scared the other guys just as much, because they shot both their rounds into the air."

    Many people would think carrying a gun in the home is "rediculous". This is a perfect example of why its a good idea to stay armed.

    I'm fairly sure they mean Texas County which is in the middle of Missouri, not Texas state. If Missouri City is in Texas County most likely its a small town.

    Missouri City is a small town outside of Houston, Tx. Hence the reason the article is from the Houston Chronicle, and the reason it references Fort Bend County and Harris County.

    You are right, I did get confused. The biggest city/town that I know of in Texas County MO is Houston. The tittle and the likeness of the two was confussing.

    I was confused, too. It took reading it like 3 times. The guys name being Houston made it extra confusing. I never have been much of a fan of the Chronicle's reporting.

    Either way, like Ridgeline said...the Good Guys won.

    and I still say...if they want to keep breeding them, then we'll keep shooting them.
