Police were called after a man's body was found in a grassy area on the side of the road. (News 4 WOAI) SAN ANTONIO -- A man was shot to death after an apparent burglary late Sunday.
The shooting happened on the 5,200 block of Northwest Trails just before 11:00 p.m.
Police were called after a man's body was found in a grassy area on the side of the road. The 26-year-old had been shot and killed after police say he burglarized a home off Timber Laurel earlier in the night.
Investigators told News 4 WOAI the homeowner recognized the man who kicked in his door, and he and his brother were able to track the intruder down a few blocks away. They told police the man then pulled a gun and threatened them, leaving the homeowner's brother no choice but to shoot the 26-year-old.
Police are not sure if the homeowner's brother will face any charges, saying the shooting may be considered a case of self defense
