Most trainers will say to shoot to stop the threat, and that’s exactly what a 70 year old Texas homeowner did yesterday morning.

However, I don’t think those trainers would say to shoot a suspect three times in the leg… but that’s exactly what a 70 year old Texas homeowner did yesterday morning.

According to KSAT,

San Antonio police responded to the shooting around 4 a.m. in the 900 block of Green Street off Nogalitos just south of Highway 90.

Police said the alleged intruder, a man in his 20s, broke into the home through a back window and was confronted by the homeowner.

The 70-year-old homeowner then shot the intruder three times in the leg, police said.

The suspect is expected to survive his injuries.

This is the 158th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Texas and the 1,223rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
