Elderly Man Kills Burglar - Burglar's Family Says He Should Have Been Warned
An armed elderly man in Dallas shot and killed a suspected burglar after finding him trying to break into his Dallas home this week. However, he was also forced to defend his actions after the would-be robber’s family showed up at his home.
The homeowner, a repeat burglary victim, found 33-year-old Deyfon Pipkins attempting to climb in the house through the window and fired at least one shot at the criminal, hitting his target.

Once police identified the suspect as Pipkins, officers notified his family. Some of those family members showed up at the house
and expressed their anger at the homeowner for not issuing a “warning.”
“He could have used a warning,” Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins’ sister-in-law, said. “He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense.”
I know that they were upset at their loss but the comments by the family burn me up. The burglar had 18 pages of warnings/chances in his criminal history. Apparently he doesn't heed warnings or accept 2nd, 3rd, or any number of chances. Well, he's had his last one now.
