Crosby gun shop owner kills burglar in shootout, sheriff says
By Jay R. Jordan

A 79-year-old military veteran and Crosby gun shop owner shot and killed a suspected burglar early Tuesday, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

The owner was asleep in his home in the 2000 block of Kennings Road, just west of Bohemian Hall Road, around 4:30 a.m. when he heard someone breaking into the adjacent combination gun store/barber shop he owned, Gonzalez said. He awoke and spotted two cars in the roadway and went out to investigate.

He came upon a few men who had just broken into the store by pulling the front door open using a car and chains, Gonzalez said. The men saw the owner outside the business and opened fire – but missed, Gonzalez said.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez gives an update from the 3800 block of Morelos Road where a Hispanic male in his early 30s died of a gunshot wound on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020, in Baytown. Officials believe this man is related to a gun shop burglary and exchange of fire with the gun shop owner about 15 to 20 minutes away in Crosby.

The owner hid behind a tree and returned fire after bullets whizzed into the tree trunk. After coming back out, he saw a trail of blood, but the suspected burglars had fled.

About 15 minutes after the initial shootout, a man in his 30s was found shot to death in the 3800 block of Morales Road, about 10 miles south of the gun store on Kennings Road.

Two men were seen giving CPR to the injured man, both of whom were taken into police custody, Gonzalez said. Investigators also recovered three guns near the scene on Morales Road.

Police teams searching remote rural area for thief who fled Harper area after gunfire

A man interrupted while stealing ranch equipment near Harper was being sought by police Tuesday afternoon in an area along the Malheur-Harney county line. The man is considered armed and dangerous after he shot at a witness.

By Pat Caldwell
VALE – More than a dozen police officers were searching for an armed man in the high desert hills on the Harney-Malheur County line Tuesday afternoon after a theft at a local ranch went awry.

Travis Johnson, Malheur County undersheriff, said deputies from the Harney County Sheriff’s Office and the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office along with the Oregon State Police are pursuing an unidentified man who stole a tractor and a side-by-side recreational vehicle from a ranch north of Harper early Tuesday morning.

Johnson said the incident began at about 3:40 a.m. when a man driving a stolen pickup truck pulled into an unoccupied ranch and loaded the tractor and side-by-side onto a trailer. Johnson said an alert neighbor called 911 and then approached the ranch and fired a shot into the air.

At that point, said Johnson, the individual in the truck fired back at the neighbor. Johnson said the owner of the ranch was out of to town.

    The “alert neighbor” needs to take some lessons from Texas Joe Horn.

    A senior citizen (extremely spry and active) lives next to his barber shop and gun shop?
    Sweet mother of Murgatriod! I’d be getting a haircut there every weekend, maybe twice a week.

    And good shooting, sir! One DOT. No further range training needed.

      Yep! Get you a clip AND a magazine, all at the same time. Check out the pics on the linky; looks like the perps fired at least 16 rounds and the owner…not so much.

      Don’t Monkey around with Ms Thang at the Junction. That Honey will sting like a bee.

      Dumbass in Oregon needs to realize the driver is responsible for the trailer/load…even if it is stolen. Bet he checks the pin for the pintle hitch or the lock down for the 5th wheel next time. Can we say safety chains? Thus concludes the lesson.

        “a clip AND a magazine”
        good one! (chuckle)
        As an amateur wordsmith, I appreciate good (bad) puns. The worser, the better.

          Uh Thank ya, thank ya verra much. I’ll be here all week. Try the veal cutlet and don’t forget to tip your waitress.

        Them boyz in Tejas were jus comin’ in for an early morning haircut. One of them got permanently “clipped.”

        Surprised to see in the crime scene photos that one of the burglars dropped a nicely blued single action pistola. It had to have been dropped by one of the perps, as no unwounded gun shop owner would drop his piece on the pavement.

        P.S. Don’t take a six-shooter to burgle and possibly rob a gun shop. Reloads can be a bitch if the owner is armed with a fifteen shot semi-auto and a spare mag.

    Combination gun shop and barbershop.
    What a great idea!
    I was amazed to read criminals giving cpr to a another criminal.
    That is the first time I have heard of that.
