    Dallas Homeowner Shoots Alleged Intruder
    Shooting Sends Man To Hospital
    DALLAS (CBS 11 News) ―

    No charges have been filed against an elderly homeowner who shot a suspected burglar this morning.

    The Oak Cliff homeowner told police his dogs started barking about 3 a.m. so he went outside to check on things.

    He said that's when a man ran into his home. The two got into a fight and the homeowner shot the intruder.

    "He fell down and tried to get up. While he tried to get up, I put another one in him," homeowner Eldridge Davis said.
    :bowdown:
    The alleged intruder is in the hospital in stable condition.


    He needs to use something better then birdshot next time.

    Exactly why you don't use birdshot against anything bigger than a bird... it only makes sense to use a shot designed to tackle large game against a person.

    depending on the range, it might be possible to kill him with the wad.
