A Marine veteran in Harris County, Texas, shot a would-be home invader that was climbing through a bedroom window on Monday, local media reports.
“I knew somebody was up to no good,” Marine veteran Dan Reynolds told Click2Houston, upon hearing a rock being smashed through the bedroom window.
“He’s not robbing me. He didn’t say anything. I didn’t say anything. I shot him and he fell back out the window and ran away,” said the 31-year-old who shot the would-be burglar in the chest.
Apparently, this isn’t the first time a thief targeted his residence. About three weeks ago, someone broke into his house when he wasn’t home and snatched up, “Laptops, tablets, stereo, phones, iPods, a TV,” according to Reynolds.
But this time he was home. And Reynolds has no regrets about shooting the suspect.
“Some people protect their homes. If you come by and want to rob, people that’s what you get,” explained Reynolds. “He probably won’t come back, but if he does, we’ll handle that then.”
