A 15-year-old boy who took a shotgun blast to the abdomen after breaking into a man's East Side home was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries Friday night, authorities said.

Bexar County Sheriff's Department Sgt. James Hancock said the boy who was shot and another teen were entering a mobile home in the Regency Village park off Montgomery Drive through an open back door.

The homeowner saw a boy in his home, grabbed a shotgun and fired once, striking him in the abdomen. He and the other boy ran away, and deputies caught the injured boy a few blocks away in the park.

The other boy was not found. Hancock said it doesn't appear the homeowner will face any charges.

The injured boy was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center and is expected to recover.

This ends an unusual run of days without reported defense shootings. I suspect it is linked to the news of so many people buying guns after the Colorado theater shooting. Criminals watch TV and read the internet, so they were likely deterred from crime for a few days.

If this punk is breaking into occupied dwellings at 15 you know he's gonna be big,big trouble for many years to come,The homeowner in question would have been doing society a favor if he had aimed somewhat higher...like at the bridge of the nose.

Very high probability that these are "Obama's sons", thus continuing the proof that the federal government has destroyed the moral fabric of black society with "welfare."

Your probably right , however anything much more powerful could go through two trailer park walls and possibly injure/kill an innocent person.

At any rate the outcome of this break-in is satisfactory.

Teen shot after entering...

What is the problem? The kid was just entering the home.

Nice, non-threatening euphemism.

The take-away? Clearly the home-owner overreacted.

Right you are. And at those close quarters, unless he used a real shorty “sawed-off” 12ga/.410, there wouldn’t be much of a pattern spread. Birdshot or rocksalt is probably the load of choice in those tight spaces.

The Taurus Judge with the 6 inch barrel and #4 .410 shell would be a great trailer park or FL double wide self defense weapon.

Thanks for putting the state in the title...that narrowed it right down to the East Side of Texas.

Then again, maybe it dawned on him there are easier ways to make money - like getting a job... I hope the kid's followed - would love to know how he turns out 20 years down the road. The homeowner might have given him the biggest lesson - and break - of his life...

Good choices! They’d both leave “appropriate marks” for those environs.

The reference is obviously to the Upper East Side of Manhattan...TEXAS.

There are still a lot of people who load rock salt. At 12 feet or less it would have an effect, but it’s mostly for the report.

Must'a been a .410 loaded with light bird shot. 10 GA with 00 buck would have worked better.

The only ‘down side’ to this story is the punks will live to sue and (more than likely) breakandent another day.

Kid's an amateur. Every experienced burglar knows you only hit the homes on the west side.

He probably wasn't using something like this.

Uh - the link goes to a San Antonio newspaper, and the perp was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

I would have no doubt about that. The east side of San Antonio has always been plagued by these types. Katrina refugees were housed on the east side of S.A., and many never went back.
