friends,

it's happened again!

early this morning, 2 thugs broke into a man's garage (off Perrin-Beital & Loop I-410) here in SATX, waking the homeowner up.

the homeowner dialed 911, was advised that the SAPD was on the way & to remain in his home.
the homeowner then armed himself with a 12guage pump shotgun & remained inside his house.

before the police arrived, the two burglars broke into the man's home, brandishing a semi-automatic pistol, & fired at least two shots at the homeowner.

the homeowner returned fire with his shotgun, killing the gunman & gravely wounding the other burglar. - according to WOAI Radio News at 9AM, the second thug is in "extremely critical condition at a local hospital & is not expected to survive his wounds."

also, just now WOAI reported that, "the homeowner suffered a gunshot wound in the face during the exchange of fire & will recover from his injury." and "no charges are expected to be filed by the SA Police".

as i've said before: When seconds count, the police are minutes away. therefore, prepare to defend yourself,as you just may HAVE TO.

yours, sw

to all,

as of 11AM, WOAI Radio News has corrected their earlier report: the criminals had a STOLEN AR-15 rifle & the homeowner was shot though the cheek, suffering a "flesh wound", that is "non-life threatening."

Good job by the homeowner, SW.

And remember that response time is even slower in unincorporated parts of your county or parrish. We can only run 6 to 7 one man patrols to cover our county. Response time, even running code, can be 15 minutes or more.

IrishCop,

tell me about it! - on my "UN-fun fright night, entertaining the 4 thugs" at our family farm (17.6 miles from the city limits), a friend at the SO told me that they would be there ASAP. - then he said, "do the best you can. it shouldn't be over 45 minutes at the most, till we get a unit there."
(actually, it was about 35 of the longest minutes in my life.)

may i point out that MANY unpleasant things can/do happen in 35 minutes? - from that night on, ANYBODY, who is at the farm after nightfall, is REQUIRED to be armed.

yours, sw
