Firefight between armed homeowner and crook breaking into his vehicle ends badly for suspect

A Texas homeowner confronted a man he heard breaking into his vehicle just before 3 a.m. Tuesday, San Antonio police told the Express-News.

Many crooks still haven’t caught on to the very real possibility that their victims may be exercising their Second Amendment rights — and apparently this guy was no exception.

What happened next?

Indeed the homeowner told police he pulled out his gun, the paper said, adding that the man allegedly breaking into his car pulled out a gun, too.

The pair exchanged gunfire, the Express News reported, and the suspect was hit in the torso and fled the scene.

What happened to the suspect and the homeowner?

Police found the suspect’s body in the grass at Bellaire Park, the paper said, which is around the corner from the crime scene.

The homeowner wasn’t hit during the shootout, KTSA-AM reported, adding that it’s unclear if the homeowner will face criminal charges.

Shawnee County deputy arrests 3 after vehicle chase ends in crash

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – A Shawnee County deputy arrested three suspects after chasing a car that crashed into a parked vehicle in southeast Topeka, the sheriff said Tuesday morning.

Dawud M. Rahman, 18, of Topeka, faces charges including:

  • Felony eluding an officer
  • Felony interference
  • Theft

Kaitlyn A. Johnson, 19, of Topeka, faces charges including:

  • Felony interference
  • Prior felony charges through the Topeka Police Department

A deputy also arrested a 16-year-old Topeka teen, who faces charges of possession of stolen property and drug violations.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office said the deputy tried to stop a 2012 Toyota Corolla that Rahman was driving around 2:55 a.m. near Southeast 6th and Rice Road. Rahman didn’t stop and the deputy gave chase. The deputy followed the Corolla to Southeast 29th Street and Colorado Avenue where it struck a parked car.

The deputy reported finding five people in the car, and some tried to run away. They were able to catch everyone in the car with help from Topeka police, and released two occupants at the scene.

Rahman and the minor were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries from the crash with a parked car, then booked into the Shawnee County Department of Corrections and juvenile corrections respectively.
