    Aside from aiming a foot too low it sounds like he did everything right.

    Primary purpose was to stop the threat. The homeowner did that.

    I wonder what the cops thought of this when they got there a 1/2 later.

    Only idiots try to break into people's houses when they are home ....

    Hope he has learned his lesson and becomes a contributing member of society.

    So, if the victims higher aim results in the criminal's inability to commit crime (or breathe) again, does that stop the threat of recidivism? 2birds1stone.

    That is true, BUT such thinking paints us as judge, jury, & executioner - AND puts the shooter in the position of possibly having to defend their action(s) as justifiable or excusable to a very serious homicide charge.

    Judicious application of deadly force suggested - be right the first time as there is no "do over."

    I'll go out on a limb and state that Texas juvenile recidivism rates are not likely anywhere in the victims shoot/no shoot decision making process. It would not be on my checklist.

    What, the victim hit the lower part of a B-29 target, in the 7-8 ring? Not bad given the situation I suspect.

    This house was down the street from by best friend growing up.
    The article along with the video said the perp later died from wounds.
    Recidivism rate w/b zero for him (not being prejudice assume it was a guy).

    Was thinking t/b shot 2x with a 357 should do a lot of damage, and it did.
