TX (Katy): Woman defends against intruders

Postby ELB » Tue Aug 01, 2017 3:44 pm

Two men carrying handguns entered a home through the open garage and unlocked interior door about 11:30 yesterday (I think). The woman home alone fired at them. One intruder made it as far as the front yard before expiring, the other jumped a fence and disappeared, unknown if he is wounded.

Ok, she should close her garage door and lock the interior door, but the real key items are:

A neighbor saw the dead suspect in the woman's front yard and called police.


And:

"It's the state of Texas. If you're going to go into someone's home, you're going to get shot," [neighbor Cathy] Hanks said.

From the second article:

Harris County Sheriff's Office's spokesman Thomas Gilliland told WTSP that both intruders -- neither of whom were identified -- were armed with pistols when the woman confronted them.


They weren't coming in to fix her a glass of iced tea, were they? Good for her, defending herself with the appropriate level of force required.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

One assailant at large. The police didn't include key descriptive info like race, so we'll have to guess at that. There is a clue though.

Police are still looking for the second intruder, described as a man in his 20s who was wearing dark clothing with red underwear peeking out of his pants.
