On April 23, an alleged 18-year-old home invader “chose the wrong house” for a daylight robbery in Arlington, Texas, and was shot and killed by the homeowner, who was in the residence at the time.
The incident occurred around 4 pm.
The body of the deceased suspect–Nathyn Tealer–was discovered in the backyard when police arrived. They arrested a second, uninjured suspect shortly afterward the incident took place.
According to 5 NBC DFW, the homeowner heard a loud noise coming from the back of his house and saw two suspects allegedly trying to break in. Arlington Police Sgt. Paul Rodriquez said the homeowner “confronted them and during the course of that confrontation he shot at them,” killing Tealer.
The homeowner was not injured during the alleged home
A next door neighbor commented on incident: “People work hard for [their] stuff, you can’t just break into somebody’s house. [If you do,] it’s the chance you take.”
