Homeowner shot with his own gun while confronting burglars

A McKinney, Texas homeowner is in critical condition in Parkland Memorial Hospital after being shot with his own gun while confronting burglars in his home. The victim, who has not been identified, told police he found three unidentified males in his house at 3:30 in the morning and confronted them with a handgun. The suspects began to struggle with the homeowner and the gun either unintentionally discharged or the suspects shot the homeowner with his own weapon. The victim was shot in the upper left torso. He was first transported to Medical Center in McKinney and later to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for treatment. He was initially listed in serious condition but doctors have since changed his condition to critical.
Police do not currently have any suspects. They report that crime is relatively low in that area, with only one other robbery in the last year.
Ohh shoot.

All too common. My great uncle was a policeman in Alexandria, Louisiana. He advocated against guns in the home, and said if you were confronted by a home invader, leave if you can, but if you can't, don't resist, and certainly don't pull a gun. It is extremely rare that a robber intends to kill, and will likely leave you unharmed. Pulling a gun triggers a fight-or-flight response which typically ends in the homeowner's death.

You pussy. His mistake was confronting them and not knowing how to use his own gun. And get a shotgun....u cant miss. If some robber is dumb enough to come towards someone with a shotgun splatter his F***** brains on the wall.
