From WFAA-TV Staff Reports
Police said a suspect was shot in the leg during an attempted burglary at a West Dallas fabricating business early Thursday morning.
Police were investigating reports that the owner of the business caught two men attempting to break in and shot, wounding one suspect in the leg. A second suspect ran from the scene of the burglary in the 3100 block of Sylvan Avenue, just west of downtown, police said.
There was no indication that the suspect who fled was shot and the condition of the suspect who was wounded was not known.
What do you think, is it OK to shoot a burglar breaking into your home or business? Is it a situational decision? Or is calling the police all you need to do?
Let your thoughts be known.
I personally think that if my family is in danger of violence then I would most likely shoot the intruder in the leg or arm as someone else called the police.
