    Police: Home Owner Shoots Robber
    July 12, 2006 04:01 PM

    Reported by Jennifer Cavazos

    A Brownsville man woke up this morning having to protect his home from a potential robber.

    What a crazy morning for Enrique Cavazos who started his day with gunfire.
    Police say a friend, standing outside Enrique's home, woke him up just after three in the morning.

    His friend told him several people, with guns, were getting out of a van and were headed towards the house.

    One of those men was Cosme Sanchez. Officers say the group intended to rob Enrique's house, but he quickly took control of the situation.

    "The suspect, also armed with a handgun, raised a gun at the homeowner and viably so defended his home and himself fired at Sanchez and shot him in the leg," says Sgt. Jimmy Manrrique with Brownsville police.

    Sanchez is in stable condition at Valley Baptist Medical Center, but doctors say there's a chance he could lose his leg.

    There will be no charges for Cavazos, because he was armed inside his home and is a licensed to carry a gun.

    Aggravated assault charges are pending for Sanchez and police say they expect to arrest more suspects in this case.
