 Police are looking for a second armed robbery suspect after a shooting in far southeast Dallas.  Two men dressed in black jumped the fence of a home on Kleberg Road near Highway 175 just before midnight Monday. They were attempting to rob the home, police said.  But they didn’t get very far because the homeowner was also armed. He pulled out his gun and shot one of the men in the abdomen.

The injured suspect later showed up at the hospital. He is expected to recover.  The second suspect is still at large. Police are looking at surveillance video to hopefully identify him.

    In the SM article, love the simple photo caption of “dead robber.”

    Reading that story from the islands is like re-enacting an old Wild West stagecoach robbery.

    “driving in their car on Chin Road when they were attacked by two unknown male suspects”

    Where’s the coach gun when you need it?/smile

    Sister Mary Grace is in a good mood and notes only this misunderstanding of terms of use: “A medical doctor arrived on the scene and pronounced the death of the suspect.”

    It is more properly written as ‘pronounced the subject dead at the scene’. Otherwise, the writer should say ‘announced the death of….’

    Folks around Lake Oconee are trigger happy of late. Still an on going double murder investigation in that area. Dallas story, look for the 2nd suspect in the men’s underwear dprt of the Dollar General. SM story, even the commenters in the linked newspaper story were needing Sister Mary Grace.
