A homeowner in San Antonio, Texas, defended himself and his property when an alleged intruder broke into his home on May 8, 2022.

The 50-year-old resident was alerted to an attempted break-in around 1:30 a.m. that early Sunday morning, and armed himself. Encountering the intruder while he was still in the process of forcing his way in, the homeowner fired twice. Both shots struck the intruder, who then attempted to flee on foot down the road.

Suffering from gunshot wounds to the elbow and thigh, the struck intruder was picked up shortly thereafter by emergency medical services. However, as he was being loaded into the ambulance, the man became enraged and then forced his escape out of the ambulance. Police were later able to track him down.(, San Antonio, Texas, 05/08/2022)

Noticing the back door of his Lake Charles, La., store was wide open in the early morning hours, Von Ned took his pistol along as he investigated, having been burglarized previously. Confronting two burglars, the storekeeper ordered the pair to stop. When they continued to advance, Von Ned fired, killing one burglar and setting the other to flight. The other man was later arrested by police, who said both men were free on bond from other charges.
