BLUE MOUND, Texas (AP) - Police say a homeowner wrested a
shotgun from an intruder and shot him and a fellow intruder in his
suburban Fort Worth home.
One of the men died of his wound in the shooting early Wednesday
in Blue Mound, while the other is hospitalized in Fort Worth.
Keith and Kellie Hoehn (HAYN) tell police the intruders kicked
in their front door and pointed a shotgun at Mrs. Hoehn's head. She
brushed the barrel aside, and a struggle ensued. The husband
disarmed the armed intruder and shot both.
Investigators say the homeowner is unlikely be charged. They say
he shot the men out of concern for his sleeping children.
Police say they believe the intruders had broken into the garage
of another house nearby earlier in the night.
