RV park owner shoots burglar

Posted:
MCLENNAN COUNTY - Three burglars are caught red handed taking an RV and propane tanks by an armed owner.

Dustin Lauderdale, Carrie Looney and Kelli Walker are all charged with engaging in criminal activity. The McLennan County Sheriff's office says the trio walked into the Waco North RV park just before 4 a.m. Monday morning. That's when the owner, Charles Stanley, saw them near an RV with multiple propane tanks while he was doing his nightly rounds. 

Stanley says after questioning the three he realized they were burglars because he knew that RV was unoccupied. 

"I walked off and acted all nonchalant, called the sheriff's office and grabbed my shotgun," Stanley said. 

Stanley then came back and confronted the three telling them to hold it. That's when Lauderdale took off. 

"And when he took off running, he pulled out a hand out of his sweatshirt, looked like he had a pistol in his hand. I was afraid he would shoot me so I fired at him," Stanley said. 

Stanley hit Lauderdale in the buttocks with a birdshot, but that didn't stop him. Stanley fired one more warning shot but Lauderdale kept going. He was eventually caught by deputies near the interstate. Looney and Walker stayed in place until deputies arrested them. 

Stanley says it made him sick to fire his gun and he's just glad it didn't hurt Lauderdale any worse.
