It was the second time in two weeks, and at least the fourth instance this year, that a San Antonio property owner or resident shot and either wounded or killed an intruder.
The homeowner, who was not identified by police, grabbed a rifle and shot at the man, striking him in the upper torso area.
Texas law permits homeowners to use deadly force to protect their home and property.
“The way it looks right now, I don't anticipate any charges will be filed,” Peterson said.
“I don't know how someone could just break into a house in broad daylight,” said Rosie Reyna, the sister, who lives across the street from where the shooting took place.
She said the neighborhood has recently been plagued with property theft — usually involving drug addicts looking for things to pawn.
And in April, an 18-year-old man was shot and killed by a Northeast Side man who caught him breaking into his home.
