IRVING, TX -- A homeowner who caught a man in his yard with an armful of tools shot and seriously wounded him Wednesday night when the man would not stop walking toward the homeowner, Irving police said.
The wounded man, whom police would not identify, is an 18-year-old Irving resident, police said. He was shot in the torso and was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. He is expected to survive, but his condition was unavailable Thursday morning, police said. The shooting happened about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of Tucker Street.
The 34-year-old homeowner told police that he heard noise in his back yard, and, believing that someone was stealing property, he grabbed his shotgun.
Once outside, the homeowner saw a man walking out of the back yard with an armful of tools, police said.
The homeowner ordered the man to lie on the ground, police said. The man put the tools down and began walking toward the homeowner, police said.
After the homeowner repeatedly warned him to stop and get down, the homeowner shot him, police said.
The homeowner was not arrested, police said.

An Irving homeowner who shot a man stealing tools from his home will not face any criminal charges, police said Thursday.
The incident happened late Wednesday in the 200 block of Tucker Street, said Irving police spokesman David Tull.
The homeowner, who told police that he has had a spate of robberies at his home, confronted the man as he was exiting the backyard with an armful of tools, police said.
The homeowner ordered the man to drop the tools and he complied. But then the man started walking toward the homeowner. The man ignored repeated orders to stop, and the homeowner fired a shotgun, hitting the man at least once in the abdomen, police said.
The man, who was described as in his late teens or early 20s, was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, police said. His condition was unknown, but he was expected to survive. Police said they did not know the man's name because he was not cooperating. Criminal charges have not been filed.
The homeowner was not arrested, Mr. Tull said.

First off, the thief wasn't unarmed.
He was approaching the homeowner in a threatening manner. He even had a loaded Black & Decker Cordless Drill and had his finger on the trigger. You have to articulate better.

I'm just glad none of the tools got hurt."I'm not a coward,
I've just never been tested
I'd like to think that if I was,
I would pass"

Yet a cop gets charged for felony assault in Iowa. This country is so fucked up sometimes.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
