A suspected burglar was shot by a homeowner Wednesday morning while attempting to steal a potted plant, police said.(from KSAT-12)
The man had just dropped his children off at school when he went to a home in the 700 block of Shadwell and tried to swipe the plan[t], police said.
Moments later, the homeowner shot the man with a handgun, police said. The bullet grazed the man on the head.
Remember, this is Texas, and criminals are likely to get shot if they are caught stealing, breaking and entering, or engaging in any other crimes against their neighbors.
It's a good thing to consider before you swipe something.
