You’ll have to use your imagination as to what the perpetrator and the home owner look like in this story. It came from a small Texas town. However, it’s the kind of story we all like to hear about.

From The Monitor:

Robber fatally shot during home invasion near Elsa

EAR ELSA — A man fatally shot a robber Friday night after swiping the attacker’s gun, deputies said.

Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputies responded to a robbery about 11:20 p.m. Friday on Eva Street, just north of Elsa, according to a news release.

Investigators said the male, armed with multiple weapons, entered the home that had three adult males inside, according to the release.

Upon entering the home, the three men struggled with the intruder and managed to take one of his weapons and use it against him, according to the release.

Investigators are still working the case to determine if there was anyone else involved in the robbery.

No charges are expected to be filed against the man who killed the robber, said J.P. Rodriguez, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

The Texas “Castle Law” allows a person to legally use deadly force when confronted with imminent danger while inside their home, business or vehicle.
