home invasion

Authorities are expected to hold a press conference after a Palmview homeowner shot and killed a burglar in his home.

It all happened some time between Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

Palmview police told Action 4 News that a burglar broke into a man's home.

The homeowner reportedly shot the burglar five times.

The burglar died from his injuries.

The details of the shooting were not immediately available but under Texas state law, homeowners are allowed to use guns to defend their homes.

Action 4 News will provide more information as it becomes available.

I agree with MTT TL--what legal or civil rights issue regarding this incident did you want to point out or discuss? Otherwise, this thread will probably get closed as a drive-by since it's just a copy-and-paste of a news article with no input from you.

All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
