In the sleepy Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas, a resident of the Colonial Grand at Hebron Apartments shot a robber at 5 AM on Tuesday.

The burglar entered the home through the patio. The man living there heard a noise in the apartment, so he grabbed his gun. When he confronted the burglar, the resident shot him once in the chest, reported NBCDFW.

Police brought him to the Medical City Hospital in Plano where he is in critical condition. Carrollton PD said that he has several prior arrests including trespassing, criminal mischief, and DWI.
