The intruder had several gunshot wounds to his upper body.

Officers seized marijuana, cash, and a semi-automatic pistol from the apartment. Police say the intruder had an accomplice who got away when gunshots rang out.

Under Texas law, the Castle Doctrine typically sides with the homeowner. The law states that a person’s home is their castle and has the right to defend themselves from criminal intruders.

Lawmakers say it presumes that use of force is reasonable and necessary when someone is illegally entering or trying to get into an occupied home, car, or workplace to commit a crime.
