Posted on 08/31/2013 9:02:11 AM PDT by lowbridge
Neighbors and law enforcement officers are praising a Texas teenager for shooting two burglars he caught in his grandmothers house. One of the suspects died; the other is in serious condition.
The burglars, identified as Charles Allen Dixon and Michael McDaniel, showed up in the grandmothers Baytown house at 5:30 on Wednesday morning. The grandmothers house had been the target of burglars before, because it was vacant since shed been put in a nursing home. The teen had moved into the house, apparently in part to protect his grandmothers possessions from invaders.
The teen confronted Dixon and McDaniel with a shotgun and ordered them to put their hands up. When they ignored his order, he shot them. Dixon died on the scene. McDaniel was wounded, but able to escape. He later went to a local hospital for treatment, and was in serious condition. Burglary charges against him are pending. The woman who drove him to the hospital has been questioned as a possible accomplice.

“He Done Good!”
he didn’t do it right.
He was supposed to just fire a couple of shots into the air from his balcony
Don’t mess with Texas!
I think he said too much.He should a said they broke in I feared for my life and shot them.
Some DA will say he didn’t NEED to shot them,they were goot boys and had the wrong address.
well, if you have the right adress you don’t have to break in. :-)
The dead one was prolly just starting to turn his life around and loved puppies too.
Not in Texas.
I am in the NE perps got all the rights
In Michigan if they were not holding a gun or knife and threatening his life he would be the one going to jail.
I wanted the article to mention what load he used and the gauge.
Um, survivors are supposed to be shot again. Life after death and all that.
He didn’t have a balcony.
Tough luck for Mr. Dixon. /sarc
Don't forget the choke - need to know that too. ;-)
Liberals would also prefer he didn't have that gun
or wave a peace sign or obama’s picture in front of the burglar..
I never use 00 Buckshot in my Full Choke barrels.
But it sure does make quite a nice pattern of 9 large holes in my Modified Choke barrels.
I could see it pretty much cutting a guy in half at close enough range
Nice shootin’, Tex.
