Homeowner firing at car burglar grazes 14-year-old boy in nearby house, Dallas police say

Loyd Brumfield
A homeowner who was trying to shoot at a car burglar ended up wounding a 14-year-old boy in a nearby home Saturday morning in Red Bird, Dallas police say.

Officers were called about 4 a.m. to the 2900 block of Appaloosa Drive, where detectives learned that a homeowner had discovered someone breaking into his vehicle in the 2800 block of Traildust Drive.

The homeowner fired repeatedly at the suspect, and one shot ricocheted off the ground, went through a second-floor window and grazed the side of the boy’s head.

Off nominal day, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, with a score of 1 / 2 / ~51, one passed, two hospitalized (giving Dad a bye here) and approximately 50 ‘youts’ scattering like autumn leaves when the Po-Po arrived. This, a knife to a gun fight, and one in the wind due to poor marksmanship and worse headwork, SMH.

    My real name is Clair. Clair Voyant.

      Gol darnit Clare, I told you I FIRST saw that matched pair of purty pistols pop up yesterday. I knowed I weren’t under the influence of anything, including needing eye bleach for the fugly gun pr0n that was on there. AW1Ed pulling tricks ’cause of that whole Army/Navy Game stuff. Or maybe the wisecrack about his beloved P-3 Orion, or getting advice from the lovelorn, or something???

      Dumbazz daddy in Dallas pays off for making a DAM. Hope the boy is really OK. Most teenagers are so hard headed ’bout take a 7.62 to get any real penetration. If he’d a hit his intended target, the kid wouldn’t got hurt.

      Ft Worth FTA: “No info on the subjects.” Wanna bet that it is the usual suspects? Openings in the choir? Bunch of good boys turning their lives around? Having a get to know Jesus meeting?

      SC: don’t know what’s worse knife to a gunfight or son attacking his Papa. A true family affair?….Sad & SMH

    Must going to be one of those super quiet days 0/0/0, no body did nothing bad, cops got naps, a sinister ploy is being planned, who knows, The Shadow Knows. Speaking of Clair Voyant, wasn’t she that girl that had buck teeth that you played Doctor with in the hayloft of that abandoned barn when you were 8.

    Tragic story, an Air Force Senior Airman stationed at Little Rock AFB is shot & killed while attempting to stop an armed robbery at a convenience store.

    You guys sure love those revolvers with Hillary Holes. I don’t get it.

  5. Jay says:

    First story apparently didn’t practice the FIFTH safety rule: Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Cooper advocated four basic rules of gun safety:

      •All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.

      •Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.

      •Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target…

      •Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot…

    Shaky day yesterday, or was it early start of today, oh well seems back on track. Bad news for someone in Dallas in shooting there. A little too fast on the draw. Group of 50 in fight, 1 DRT, 1 wounded to me would mean 48 skipped out but we’ll go with AW’s tally as an overall 1/2/~51, going to be a long wait at window as to payout status. Dad apparently kept secret of never bringing a knife to a gun fight from son. Either that or dad kept gun safe combo away from son. 5th, drive past window area and if it is crowded pick me up a double mac with cheese and chocolate shake as it gives me gas and that should thin out the crowd some, otherwise just get a foot long and Pepsi at sub.

  7. Shooting at the car burglar sounds like a bad shoot in this case. In Florida, there would be Jail time. WTF is wrong with these peeps who shoot at perps and vehicles AFTER the fact.

    • Tallywhagger says:

      Amen. Crimes against property seldom rise to the standard of lethal force, especially when the criminal is attempting to flee.

  8. docduracoat says:

    Jeff,
    I agree with you completely.
    Here in Florida, that person would be up on charges in a heartbeat.
    The wrinkle in the story is that it was in Texas, at night.
    I believe that in Texas you can shoot in defense of property at night.
    Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    Every bullet has to be accounted for.
    Sending one downrange addressed “to whom it may concern” is a very bad idea.
