Lawful Houston Gun Owner Gets Away with Illegal Shooting

The Houston Chronicle reports
A man told Harris County sheriff's deputies he saw someone breaking into his car about 6 p.m. on Thursday outside a shooting range.
The owner told deputies he fired at least four shots at the stranger because it appeared he had a weapon in his hand, authorities said.
He fired at least two more shots when the burglar fled in a waiting Chrysler sedan. The man told deputies he may have struck the back window, officials said.
Whether the stranger was hit was unclear. They did not have a detailed description of him, sheriff's deputies said.
First of all, it sounds like bullshit that he thought he saw a weapon in the burglar's hand. People breaking into cars are usually not armed unless you count one of those metal strips they use to pop the locks.
So the first four shots were criminal acts.  Then, shooting two more times at a fleeing car is just unbelievable. That is extremely irresponsible behavior with a  gun.
The shooter should have been arrested, but you know what, in Texas that just don't happen.
Whatp s your opinion?  Please leave a comment.
