    CORINTH - The suspect in a Tuesday break-in at a Corinth business has died from a gunshot wound inflicted by the business owner, police say.


    James Thomas Parson, 25, of North Parkway, Corinth, was pronounced dead at Magnolia Regional Health Center on Tuesday, said Corinth Police Chief David Lancaster.


    The police department received an emergency call about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday through 911 to go to the scene of a burglary in progress at The Jewelry Box, 706 S. Tate St., Corinth, the chief said.


    Responding officers found Parson lying on the floor inside the business with a gunshot wound to the stomach and called emergency services, which transported him to the hospital.


    Lancaster said the business owner reported he heard a noise at the front of the store and took his handgun when he went to check it out.


    When he saw a man coming through a window, he ordered the intruder to stop, but he did not. Instead, the suspect came inside the business, reached up and ripped down the video surveillance equipment.


    The owner said he again told the suspect to stay where he was or get out, but the suspect charged toward him and he fired one shot, which struck the intruder in the abdomen, Lancaster said.


    The case remains under investigation, but no charges have been filed.

    The burglary business can be tough.

    I believe that burglary is becoming more dangerous than fishing for alaskan king crab

    Have to wonder if the guy was strung out on something. Charging an armed victim when confronted, instead of making tracks out of the place.
    Good for the business owner.

    Well I think the crab is worth the danger. Theft on the other hand... Well I dont think bullets are worth such hard work as thiefs put into it. not for them anyway. I think the owner of that buisness ought to get a bonus.

    Should be quite the fireworks when the Sooners play the Gators at the Orange Bowl (looking like that's how it will go down, anyway)...
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
