Woman Shoots One Of Two Burglars Dead

A glass half full.
A Southeast Oak Cliff resident shot and killed a burglary suspect who kicked in her door alongside an accomplice Wednesday afternoon.

One suspect was taken to Methodist Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The second escaped. Police cleared the area in front of the home at 7230 Concordia Lane, saying the suspect’s car had to be towed away. The vehicle had paper plates. 

Tweets sent from the official Dallas Police Department Twitter account said two suspects kicked in the door of the home at about 11:30 a.m. The resident was alone upstairs and heard the noise. She confronted the two burglars as they ascended the stairs and shot at them several times. 

The two ran out the front door and one collapsed from a gunshot wound. Police later recovered a gun at the scene, "indicating at least one of the suspects was armed." Nobody has been identified.
