Temple Burglary Leaves One Woman Wounded

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Police responded to a call on Monday afternoon about a burglary on the 4800 block of Silver Leaf Court in Temple, leaving one woman wounded.
 
Neighbors were in disbelief that someone would try to break into a home in their neighborhood, let alone shoot someone. Neighbor Edward Landa watched as police cars filed in.
 
"I went down by the mailbox and here comes another vehicle, then the Scottish Rite ambulance coming flying up in here... I figured it might be a shooting or something," says Landa.
 
Two men entered the home through the back door while the victim was home. The victim spoke to News Channel 25's Markeya Thomas explaining the incident.
 
"I was in the room doing some work on the computer because I work home… work home from the computer," explains the victim, who wants to remain anonymous for her safety. "And I had left to go into the kitchen to get something to drink and as I was getting something to drink out of the refrigerator I heard somebody coming in the back door."
 
The victim immediately went to the trunk, and retrieved her handgun. She took it off of safety and cocked it. By the time she walked out the man was already in her living room and she confronted him with her gun.
 
The suspects then tackle the victim, and she began to hit him. The second suspect ran away in the midst of the living room brawl.
 
"He was screaming to his other friend ‘Help me!' And the friend was like ‘No,' so he ran off and left."
 
The victim continues to explain, "the (victim's) gun went off like 3 times and then the 4th time it hit me in my leg. And he (the first suspect) took off after that."
 
Detectives have several leads on this case but are still looking for more information. If you have any information, please contact 254-298-5500.
