Since we didn’t have a feel good story for yesterday, we have two today, the first is from Chief Tango about a California man who was just turning his life around when he found himself crawling through another man’s doggie door;
[The homeowner] found a man crawling through the doggy door in an attempt to gain entry into the house.
The resident was questioning the home intruder when he reportedly began lifting what looked like a firearm. The man fired twice at the criminal, sending him running for his life. He apparently did not hit the suspect.
The resident then saw a second suspect in the yard who he told police also appeared to have a firearm. When the second suspect raised the apparent weapon, the man fired two more times.
The second story is from David and out of Houston where some folks mounted up a posse and ran down two car rustlers, one of whom is currently turning his life around in the hospital;
Officials said people followed two suspected car thieves who were driving two stolen vehicles and confronted them at the station. One of the suspects was shot and wounded. He was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital. Details of his wounds and condition were not released.
The other suspect reportedly left.
Police said homicide investigators were at the scene trying to figure out what led to the shooting.
I think there’s a Toby Keith song in that last story somewhere.
