Man shot in Dallas after breaking into home, police say

Police believe a 21-year-old man entered a Dallas condominium early Thursday to steal a flat screen TV, but he was shot to death instead, police said.
Gary Williams was taken to Baylor Medical Center following the shooting about 2 a.m. at the condo in the 6100 block of Tremont Street, southwest of Lakewood Country Club, aid Sgt. Ray Beaudreault, a homicide detective.

Williams was pronounced dead on arrival, having been shot multiple times by the homeowner who was armed with a 9mm handgun, Beaudreault said.

The resident told police that he was sleeping, but his wife heard something downstairs. She awoke her husband who got his handgun and went to investigate.

He told officers that he confronted a man, later identified as Williams, who, he said, was removing the TV from the wall, Beaudreault said.

The robber "came at him," Beaudreault said, so he opened fire.

"He fell down a brief time, then got up and jumped through the window that he came in from," the detective said of Williams. "He landed spread-eagle on the front porch and he was lifeless."

Beaudreault said the case will be referred to the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, and prosecutors will show the information to a grand jury.

Beaudreault called that procedure routine. He indicated the man probably won't be indicted by the grand jury.

"They usually no-bill these cases and there is no reason this case would be any different," Beaudreault said. "He was in his house. He was protecting his property and his life."

9MM will let him at least get out of your house before dying, saving you a costlier clean up!

And you predicted his intentions how?

What if he was going to put the TV at the door,
then proceed to kill you, rape your wife, and kidnap your children?

Someone in the house is a threat. PERIOD.

Expect to see more of this as things get worse.

Home insurance has a deductable. How many $1000 deductables does a home owner have to pay out before the next one is worth stopping. 2..5...10..20 at what point is the home owner justified in saying enough is enough I'm not letting scumbags steal all my shit anymore?

Yep. Anyone I catch in my house stealing my shit, insured or otherwise, will definitely have "came at me" when I pull the trigger 4 or 5 times. Swear to God.
