Don't mess with Texas: Corpus Christi homeowner shoots home invader

“Air goes in and out. Blood goes round and round. Any variation of that is bad.” Those were the words that stuck with me from my first concealed carry instructor years ago.


A home invader in Corpus Christi decided to test that theory this morning, and it didn’t go so well for him.

A man suspected of breaking into a home on the 5300 block of Greenbriar Monday morning was shot by the homeowner and taken to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Police say evidence points to the suspect breaking in through the back of house and being shot in the abdomen by the homeowner at around 10:30 a.m

Another news outlet provides a little more detail.

Around 10:30 this morning, neighbors called police when they heard gunfire at the home in the Corpus Christi Country Club neighborhood.

Officers followed a blood trail from the home that headed towards the gold course. There they found a man in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the stomach.
