The three unidentified suspects approached the front yard where guests were socializing and attempted to rob them at gunpoint. Two of the suspects had handguns, police told FOX4 Dallas-Fort Worth.

An unnamed man, who was a licensed handgun carrier visiting the residence, drew his weapon and shot one suspect, police said in the release. The two other suspects escaped and remain at-large.

Not that it matters, but that's just a few blocks from the Barrow family home/gas station on Singleton (then Eagle Ford Road). As in Clyde Barrow, Bonnie's boyfriend.

Wait till the libtard media get ahold of this (unless they are scared of the truth).
Imagine the headlines: "Texas man brutally murders innocent armed criminals".

Good job and glad he had his tool on him. Saddest news: he didn't get the other two.

Haha. Yeah, it could have gone down differently. “Man draws his pristine Cabot 1911 on suspected robber but decides not to shoot as it would greatly affect the firearms value.”

Ironically enough, my wife just gave me grief for carrying during a barbeque at my house. My daughter is headed back to college today, so I decided to smoke a brisket for her on Sunday. My wife took a picture of me carving up the meat, and posted it to Facebook, where she immediately got comments because my 1911 was visible on my hip. She asked if I really needed to carry all the time. I think this story helps to answer that question.

As you learn in the MSF motorcyle course (and it applies to us too) ATGATT... All the gear, all the time.

Here is the Dalls PD statement about the shooting.

https://dpdbeat.com/2020/01/11/informat ... go-street/
On January 10, 2020, at approximately 11:55 p.m., residents of a home in the 3400 block of Chicago Street were hosting a social gathering in their front yard, when three black male suspects approached and robbed them at gunpoint. One of the individuals visiting the home, a 25-year-old Latin male, was a licensed handgun carrier. He produced his firearm and shot one of the suspects, who has not yet been identified. The suspect was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased. The other two suspects fled the location and remain at large.

The individual who shot the suspect was interviewed by detectives with the Homicide Unit at Dallas Police Headquarters and provided a statement regarding the incident. He was released by police and this case will be referred to a Dallas County Grand Jury.
If the LTC was questioned and released by Dallas PD, does the mention of a Grand Jury mean the DA will seek and indictment for the LTC for killing the robber? Or does it maybe mean that the DA will seek an indictment for the other two robbers that fled the scene?

My money is on no-billing the LTC guy and felony/law of the parties murder indictment for the robbers.

Depends.
How stupid is the DA? Is she a libtard/libturd? (not sure how deep the blue runs in Dallas these days)
Imagine, a non-black man murdered an innocent black criminal with a gun. Get a blue jury and the defender will rot in jail for life.
If the Sheriff passed this to the DA, this smells bad already.

Curious how this shakes out. Can you please keep us posted with updates on the defender's health and freedom status?

Same here. Wife been giving me grief. :totap:
But I showed her some of the news stories posted here in the Houston thread and she changed her tune. Specifically the attempted kidnapping for ransom and this BBQ story.

On a similar note, wife was taking out the trash last night through the open garage. She noticed a car slow down, stop, turn around and start pulling into our driveway.
She went immediately inside to:
A) ask me if I was expecting someone
B) grab a gun

I think she's starting to get into the right mindset! :)

And btw, it was a friend who stopped by to pick something up last night which I failed to tell her ahead of time. But I applaud her SA and decision making.

For sure. Carry 24-7 or guess right. This would have turned out bad
