A homeowner used a shotgun to turn the tables on a pair of would-be burglars in San Antonio.
Two would-be burglars proved no match for a homeowner with a shotgun in San Antonio early Wednesday morning.
That’s when San Antonio Police say the man grabbed a shotgun and confronted the suspects. During the scuffle, the homeowner hit one of the suspects over the head with his shotgun and shot the other suspect after the burglar said he had a gun.
Nobody other than the homeowner was present at the time of the incident, police said.
Both men managed to flee the scene on foot, but KENS says they were arrested after being picked up by family members and transported to an area hospital.
The wounded suspect is expected to survive the shooting and is facing a burglary charge, as is his accomplice. The homeowner is not likely to be charged for the shooting.
