I think the way it reads the property owner was wounded but he is not the one charged. I don't understand why people like the woman interviewed say " I don't feel as safe anymore" well don't go onto other people property at night a cause a fight. This was totally avoidable. Hopefully the home owner is ok.

Respecting other people's property is a thing of the past. We had a kid that use to cut across our lawn on his bike. I asked him to stop, but he continued. I put up a fence and he came back that night and set it on fire.
Another kid use to deliver papers and would cut across my lawn and break off the sprinkler heads. I asked him to stop and he wouldn't. I talked to his father and he refused to do anything about it.
We moved and the neighbor's son-in-law would drive his car across my lawn to take a shortcut to their house. I parked my truck in his way one day and he vandalized it.
If someone had complained to my parents when I was a kid I would have gotten my butt whipped.

You're hundred percent correct rhinoman.
And the problem starts with the so-called parents. Far too many parents think their little babies just can't do anything wrong and they don't teach them any respect for anything or anyone.
Sometimes these little babies decide to break into somebody's house and wind up shot dead right there.
People don't own their mistakes, there are rarely consequences for bad actions and parents do WAY too much shielding these days. And we wonder why we have problems in this country...
Agreed. People don't have the respect for others and the property of others that they used to. Parents aren't actually raising their kids any longer, they're just actively trying to keep their kids quiet by shoving a smartphone or a tablet in their hands, and not teaching them the difference between right and wrong. They grow up that way these days. No please, no thank you, just self-entitlement and attitude.

Its the same out here in rural areas not just the cities. Its a generational thing. The entitlement crowd thinks they can do whatever they want. We all saw it coming in the schools. Its not something police can fix, alot of times calling them makes it worse by escalating. You try to handle it yourself and guess who calls the police then. Next time I move I want NO neighbors period...
When I was little, I was taught to respect other peoples' property. Little kids learn to respect people by first respecting the things those people own. That's how I was brought up. There would have been hell to pay if we did some of the things posters on this thread have described. I'd have had the crap beat out of me and there would have been other punishment, as well.
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
Post (put up posted signs and if needed use purple paint on post-trees) your property and it will give you a better legal standing in under Texas Law.
Fences also make for better neighbors and neighborhoods.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
I was raised to respect others and their property. The folks around here generally do the same for the most part, but as more and more move to this area, that can no longer be guaranteed. Since I've been here, I've only seen one fairly suspicious person, and it turned out they were simply lost. The next time we move, I want to have my guns to protect against four-legged critters if need be, not two-legged ones.
I hate headlines written like this. "Two adults, one child shot..." Then the story goes on to say it was a juvenile. Although the definition varies, using "child" in a headline clearly implies someone younger than a juvenile. So it is another case of a headline writer either not reading the article or trying to embellish to get attention.
And speaking of age, any elderly male has the God-given right to tell children and juveniles to "Get off my lawn!" I think it is constructively covered in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but it should have been more expicit!

About 30 years ago my cousin had trouble with the new neighbors teenage son driving his car across the lawn.
Talking to the kid made it worse. He did a couple cookies in the lawn. Talked to dad and he called the cops about being harassed.
My cousin decided to do some creative landscaping and spent all week preparing his side yard for a rock garden. He waited for the kid to leave on Friday night, then he called me to bring the rock for his new rock garden. The center piece was a red granite rock weighing in around 1800lbs.
The kid came home around 2a.m., cut across the front yard and around the side of the house. My cousin woke up to the crash. Trans Am's don't do well against hard objects.
Kid was charged with reckless driving, trespassing, and criminal damage to property. The icing on the cake was the kids State Farm insurance refused to pay for anything due to the criminal actions.
Thankfully that situation ended there. Could imagine how that would go today with the lack of respect many people have for everyone but themselves.

Two counts of aggravated assault for the dirtbag who opened fire on the older man; I wonder why he wasn't charged with attempted murder? Life in the hood...
