The Killeen Police Department is currently looking for a potentially wounded man who is suspected of attempting to burgle a Killeen home, according to a news release issued by the Police Department.

Officers responded to a reported burglary of a habitation Sunday at 5:09 a.m. in the 2200 block of Wheeler Avenue, according to the release. When they arrived, they were told the victim was sleeping in the house when noises from inside the home woke them up. According to the report, the victim got a handgun just as the unknown suspect entered the bedroom. The victim reportedly fired a shot at the suspect, who fled eastbound on Wheeler Avenue.

Hence the need for more stringent gun control. Had the homeowner exercised more control over their gun it wouldn't be so hard for the police to find this jerk!
