HOUSTON — A homeowner will face a grand jury after shooting a man to death outside an apartment in southeast Houston Friday morning, according to the Houston Police Department.

This happened just before 7:30 a.m. on Village Way near Telephone Road.

Police said homicide detectives learned that a man, who has not yet been identified, may have been trying to steal a catalytic converter from a vehicle parked at the complex. The owner of that vehicle shot the man, investigators said.

3 Green Bay police officers involved in July 20 shooting will not face charges and returned to work Tuesday

Kelli Arseneau, Green Bay Press-Gazette
Three Green Bay Police Department officers who were placed on administrative leave will not face charges for a July 20 shooting of a man involved in a domestic disturbance.

Officers Cameron Boersma, Shawna Coron and Chrisopher Vaubel, all four-year veterans of the police department, returned to duty Tuesday after the Brown County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and determined there was “no evidence to suggest criminal conduct,” the police department said in a news release Friday.

Police were called to respond to a domestic dispute between two people at an apartment complex in the 700 block of Chapel View Road at 11:14 p.m. July 20.

When officers arrived at the residence, Russell Lonas, 31, of Green Bay, had driven away in a vehicle, and police were informed that he had a gun, according to the criminal complaint.

An officer located him and attempted a traffic stop, but Lonas continued driving, according to a criminal complaint. The officer pursued the vehicle, and police caused Lonas’ vehicle to spin out. Lonas then drove in the grass, and police met him in a field south of Chapel View Road and attempted to negotiate with him, according to the complaint.

Lonas shot once into the air, the complaint said, then got back into his vehicle and drove away, eventually driving in direction of the apartment complex.

Congratulations to the district attorney for reaching the stunningly obvious conclusion. Need more of this.

Man shot, killed by officer outside Caldwell County home, police say
WSOCTV.com News Staff

A man was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Caldwell County Friday morning, police said.

Channel 9s Dave Faherty learned the shooting happened around 5:30 a.m. on Eastview Street near Highway 321 in the Town of Hudson.

Police said a man who called 911 and hung up was the person who was shot and killed by an officer. Faherty learned the man lived in a garage behind his parent’s home.

Police have not identified the man who was killed. The officer was not hurt in the shooting.

“Once there, they encountered a subject. He was noncompliant with their commands and ultimately put them in a situation where they had to use deadly force,” said Hudson police Chief Richard Blevins.

The chief said it was not a physical altercation that led to the use of deadly force. He confirmed the shooting did not happened inside the home.

Yes, but when did it not happened? *sigh*

Thanks again for the links, Gun Bunny. There must be some kind of nexus of stupid that is Houston, and KHOU is its voice. Grinding on an exhaust system at 0730 should get one shot, thieving or not.

There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.

A coupla more DRTs and a DA that got it right. Some days it is worth getting out of bed. We’ll keep a weather eye out for a follow up on the KHOU story. May and/or may not have been a good shoot, but…it IS Texas.

We are seeing that tyranny right before our eyes…it’s happening in real time and is not a motion picture that ends well.

Nice little hide-a-way you featuring there, Big Dog. Is one of those on your shopping list or is there a new plasticized abomination calling out a siren song?

The blue version of that is the 442, like the Olds, but mine has a recessed hammer with a serrated edge that makes it possible to operate as SA/DA. Been my main carry piece for going on 30 years.

Carried that pocket protector in and out of D.C. for about 10 years, fits in dress trousers just fine. Still carry it when cruising about on the motorcycle. It’s gotten to the point where I no longer feel safe even at the big truck stops during the late evening hours.

The Texas shooting is not going to go well for the shooter.

Not necessarily, shooting people stealing from you is a time-honored tradition here. “He threatened me” is the get-out-of-jail card.

Might work!

Didn’t go to good for the shootee either!

Looks like a bad shoot unless the deceased perp was a threat to the Homeowner to do bodily harm. Home owner would have been better off letting the guy go under the car and jump into the car real fast and run him over. This happened just awhile ago. Will see what happens when everything comes out.

Home invaders versus teen with shotgun.

2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Just in: Left/libtards just made guns/ammo a specific trackable purchase category on credit cards; easy to run a list of who owns guns/ammo, no warrant or laws preventing gov’t lists required– just ask a like-minded left/libtard crony with access!

Yup, gun control fans proud it “will help alert law enforcement to potentially illegal firearm sales”– how exactly? Will LE get regular updates and run those all names? And make a list?

Contrary to popular belief, “Castle Doctrine” doesn’t protect you if you shoot someone on your property. It only works in your favor if your life, or the life of someone in your immediate care is in danger of death or grave bodily harm. Castle Doctrine merely removes the requirement of retreat from your property if you find yourself in a life threatening situation, it does not grant you an execution chamber.
In most states (such as Minnesota, where I live) there is a “duty to retreat”. But this is only required if it is reasonably safe, and easy to do. If you’re in a situation where retreat is not possible, nor safe to do, you do not have to retreat. But if that possibility exists, you have to show that you made the effort to retreat, or you have to have done so, or you can be charged with murder.
