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.
