According to KSAT, an apartment resident in San Antonio used deadly force to defend himself when three men broke into his apartment.
According to the article,
Police said one of the suspects grabbed the tenant, 21-year-old Dmitri Lawrence Brown, by the throat, forced him down, then put a hand over his eyes while the other two suspects attempted to steal jewelry from the apartment.
As the suspects were leaving, Brown was able to get up and grab a gun, police said. He then shot and killed the suspect who had been holding him down, police said.
Four children and their mother were also inside the apartment at the time. None of them were reported to be injured.
Texas has very broad self defense laws, and shooting fleeing suspects is permitted by law under some circumstances.
Police say the resident will not face charges.
Police say the remaining suspects fled the scene in a silver Dodge Charger.
