I haven't seen this discussed...A woman fatally shot a car burglary suspect Monday night in the parking lot of her northwest Houston apartment complex, police said.
The woman, who is eight months pregnant, told Houston police she shot the man about 9 p.m. after she spotted him breaking into her car parked outside the apartment in the 5900 block of Pinemont at Alabonson.
The man still had a screwdriver in his hand when the woman opened fire with a shotgun. The door lock to her car also had been popped open, officers at the scene said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was still being questioned late Monday.
