Suspected Burglar Shot and Killed By Armed Resident

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — A suspected burglar was shot and killed after he allegedly kicked down the door of a resident’s apartment one morning last month, according to KSAT.

KSAT shared this report:

According to an SAPD spokesperson, an apartment resident said a man kicked down the door in an attempt to burglarize it. Since the door was bolted, police said, that man had to use immense force to kick down the door.

The resident pulled out a gun and shot the intruder, police said. The suspected burglar was pronounced dead at the scene, and his name and age were not released.

Police said the resident acted in self-defense, and there have been calls to the apartment in the past.

The incident occurred near Advanced Learning Academy, which is part of the San Antonio Independent School District.

A spokesperson for SAISD said the campus is open and SAISD police officers are present to help with traffic and student drop-off.


It’s hard not to be curious as to whether or not the burglar was known to the victim, if there have been calls there before.

Regardless, we can all be grateful that this individual had the means to protect themselves against a possible deadly attack.
