Homeowner shoots 'suspicious' woman in FW neighborhood

Fort Worth homeowner shoots woman

FORT WORTH - A woman is in the hospital after police say a homeowner shot her.

Officers were called to 2512 N. Edgewood Terrace at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday after several people said they saw a woman in several yards going up to houses. Neighbors said the woman looked "suspicious."

Police say one homeowner came outside to find the woman in his backyard and shot her. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officer Brad Perez with FWPD says it's believed the woman was known to a neighbor and had gotten into a fight at another home before she wandered through the neighborhood. An A/C unit at one home was found damaged and turned on its side, Perez said.

The homeowner who fired his gun told police he had been burglarized before and thought it might be happening again.

The woman will be charged with criminal mischief.
