Police: Dog Shot In Home Invasion, Resident Fights Back

EL PASO, TEXAS — El Paso police believe that a man found shot two miles away from a home invasion on Howard Street in northeast El Paso last Wednesday morning is connected to the incident.

The suspect, identified as 29-year-old Bruce Wayne Murphy (yes, that does appear to be his real name), allegedly forced his way into a home on Howard Street, injuring a dog and firing a weapon inside the house, according to KVIA.

In response, one of the residents, 37-year-old Sean Patrick Suniga, fired back at Murphy with his own handgun.

Murphy was later found at the intersection of Gateway South and Broaddus Ave, yelling for help.

He was taken to the hospital and will be booked on charges of burglary of habitation once he is released. The condition of the injured dog was not provided. The Animal Cruelty Investigative Unit also responded to the incident.
