Gun Shop Owner Shoots Burglar
A 79-year-old military veteran, Raymond Balcerowicz of Crosby, Texas, was awakened at 4:30 a.m. by a loud noise at the gun shop attached to his residence. According to ABC Channel 13 News, Balcerowicz went out — armed — to investigate and found the doors to his shop had been pulled off by a car using chains. When the trio of burglars saw him, they shot at him but missed. Using a tree as cover, the owner returned fire. He did not miss. The trio left behind a blood trail, and police later found a 20-year-old man dead next to several stolen guns.
