While on a call with a 911 operator, a Pasadena, Texas man used his 12-gauge shotgun to kill two men he caught robbing an absent neighbor's house. The man told the 911 operator that he was "getting [his] gun and going to stop them."
The two robbers did not stop when asked to by the gunman. From within a range of 15 feet, the gunman shot one robber in the chest and the other in the side. The only thing apparently taken from the house was a bag filled with cash.
Texas has a Castle Doctrine law, but it does not seem to apply in this case. However, Texas law may still be on the side of the gunman if the neighbor had asked him to watch over the property. A grand jury must decide if a crime was committed.
