Burglary Suspect in Texas Calls 911 For Help as Homeowner Holds Him at Gunpoint
|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
A Texas burglary suspect dialed 911 early Tuesday morning to report that an armed homeowner was threatening to shoot him, MyFoxDFW.com reported.
James Gerow, the homeowner, told the station that he awoke and discovered a man wearing a dark hoodie inside his Springtown, Texas home. Springtown is a small city Northwest of Fort Worth.
Gerow grabbed his gun and followed the man out to a truck in his driveway.
With gun in hand, Gerow convinced the man to drop his keys. He told his wife to call 911 and waited for deputies to arrive.
This is another example of a defensive gun use that won’t be included in many studies because a shot was never fired. A gun was used to bring about a peaceful resolution to the situation in which no one was hurt.
