Police say a man will not face charges after he shot a 14 year old boy who was breaking into his home on the far west side early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Police say a couple was asleep in their home in the 7300 block of Westville about 3 this morning. The home is being repaired, but the couple has been sleeping there because of 'problems with burglaries in the location.'
The women heard sounds and noticed that 'several people' were coming into the home through a rear bedroom window.
The man grabbed his handgun and opened fire.
Soon after, a man showed up at a fire station on Culebra Road with his 14 year old son, who had been shot in the stomach. He was rushed to University Hospital.
The boy told police he had been shot while entering a home.
The boy will face burglary charges, no charges are expected against the homeowner.
