    Good - Home Invader Picks The Wrong House - San Antonio, TX

    S.E. Side homeowner kills intruder

    A Southeast Side homeowner shot and killed a man early Thursday morning who was trying to break into his bedroom window.

    The man, believed to be in his 20s, was trying to get into a rear bedroom window of a house in the 1400 block of Greer and when the homeowner shot him, police said.

    The homeowner, a firearms instructor, was home alone and in the bedroom the burglar was attempting to enter.

    The homeowner, who teaches people how to shoot weapons, told police he awoke just after 3 a.m. to a see a man trying to climb in his bedroom window.

    Police say the homeowner got a handgun and fired at least three times. No charges are expected to be filed against the homeowner.

    Investigators are trying to determine if the dead man was linked to a nearby burglary 15 minutes before he was shot at the house on Greer.

    I like a good ending to a story like this.

    So this dirtbag decided to break into the home of a 'firearms instructor'?

    Great story...great ending!

    Breaking into a firearm instructor's house is the burglar's version of Russian roulette. This burglar picked the loaded cylinder.

    This outcome is good for the rest of society who might have been the burglar's next victim(s).

    Lucky it wasn't the DEA (former) firearms instructor, he would have shot himself AGAIN!

    So just breaking into a home in Texas wasn't enough. He had to try going in through the bedroom. Where the homeowner was. Who was a firearms instructor.

    Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Dead.

    Thanks. I needed a laugh.

    This story reminds me of the one from the early 90's of the knife wielding burglar who broke into the home of Brandon Lee (yep the son of Bruce Lee), not only did this guy break in, but he entered through Brandon's dojo (weapons, belts, etc displayed prominently on the walls). Seems the intruder was arrested, but not before getting his arm and several ribs, his nose, and his jaw broken
