Attention: Houston Area Criminals

I wonder when Houston area criminals will get the message that homeowners may be armed?

“A 63-year-old woman fired a shot to scare off an unknown man who broke into her Friendswood home Saturday morning, authorities said.

The woman was sleeping in a first-story bedroom of her home in the 400 block of Regency about 11:15 a.m. when she heard a loud noise and then her home alarm system sounded. She then heard footsteps going to the second floor, authorities said.

After grabbing her pistol, the woman told investigators she walked into her living room and found a man standing near the back door inside the residence. She then fired a single shot in the direction of the intruder, authorities said.

The man ran through through a glass door — shattering it — in his attempt to flee the house, authorities said. The woman was unharmed. Officers searched the surrounding area, but were unable to find the the man.”

This one knows. I hope he tells his friends.

  1. I would hope they canvas the area drug-stores for anyone buying lots of antiseptic and/or bandages.
    I bet this guy’s thinking of that saying: Death by a thousand cuts.
    Too bad she missed. Don’t they give Sr. Discounts at Houston pistol ranges?
