CHINA SPRING (August 31, 2012)—A homeowner confronted a burglary Friday morning at a residence in China Spring and was able to fire at least one shot at the suspect before he ran away.

McLennan County deputies were sent just before 11 a.m. to a residence in the 2000 block of Meandering Way where a homeowner reported he had opened fire on a man who was trying to break into the home.

Oh, BTW, I would pay for a bit more range time for the homeowner.
