Suspected burglar fatally shot in Channelview

July 29, 2009 5:23:45 AM PDT
The Harris County Sheriff's Office doesn't plan to charge a Channelview homeowner who shot and killed a suspected burglar. The homeowner confronted the man he says was taking items from his garage. During that fight, he ended up shooting that man.

According to the sheriff's department, no charges are pending and the case will be sent to a grand jury.

Investigators tell us the same homeowner dealt with burglars the day before, but it's unclear if the two cases are related.
