    Man shot in Dallas after breaking into home, police say

    Police believe a 21-year-old man entered a Dallas condominium early Thursday to steal a flat screen TV, but he was shot to death instead, police said.
    Gary Williams was taken to Baylor Medical Center following the shooting about 2 a.m. at the condo in the 6100 block of Tremont Street, southwest of Lakewood Country Club, aid Sgt. Ray Beaudreault, a homicide detective.

    Williams was pronounced dead on arrival, having been shot multiple times by the homeowner who was armed with a 9mm handgun, Beaudreault said.

    The resident told police that he was sleeping, but his wife heard something downstairs. She awoke her husband who got his handgun and went to investigate.

    He told officers that he confronted a man, later identified as Williams, who, he said, was removing the TV from the wall, Beaudreault said.

    The robber "came at him," Beaudreault said, so he opened fire.

    "He fell down a brief time, then got up and jumped through the window that he came in from," the detective said of Williams. "He landed spread-eagle on the front porch and he was lifeless."

    Beaudreault said the case will be referred to the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, and prosecutors will show the information to a grand jury.

    Beaudreault called that procedure routine. He indicated the man probably won't be indicted by the grand jury.

    "They usually no-bill these cases and there is no reason this case would be any different," Beaudreault said. "He was in his house. He was protecting his property and his life."

    hope the tv came out ok.

    Seriously, I hope the TV came out okay. It would really suck to have no one to sue if it got fucked up.

    The only local story I have seen that mentioned a number said it was three times. Most just say "multiple"

    I'm surprised anyone in Texas is dumb enough to break into a house. It's basically a suicide mission.

    If only criminals were always treated this cordially, I bet break-in numbers would fall significantly.

    Shit! :rofl:

    after seeing what it does to a >100 pound buck i feel one shot anywhere would be more than enough to make someone think twice.

    its a billion times better than the amc .32 pistol i was found when i cleaned out my grandpas old house, after he passed.

    Yeah, I have a .32 ACP that I carry sometimes but I'm glad it holds 7 rounds (I'd probably need them all).

    i wouldnt trust the thing ever. i really need to buy my dad a proper pistol to keep around the house. he thinks a .22 or a .32 would be overkill.

    maybe one of those germany police return sig sauers?
