stock_P1020356This story is an example of why it’s so important to train to shoot quickly and accurately. One shot, even an on target shot, is not always enough to stop a threat.

According to KHOU, a homeowner heard a noise around 11pm last night and armed himself.

The homeowner went to investigate and saw someone attempting to gain entrance into his home.

The suspect had used a concrete brick to brazenly smash the front window of the home.

The homeowner fired a shot at the suspect and hit him once in the torso. This apparently only made the suspect mad because at this point the suspect tried to come after the homeowner.

Fortunately, the homeowner was able to fire a second shot which struck the suspect in the hand. Apparently, getting shot in the torso wasn’t enough to deter this suspect, but the hand was.

The suspect is described as being in serious, but stable condition at an area hospital.

This is the 141st defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Texas and the 1047th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
