Robber Fatally Shot In South Texas Home

Updated: Sunday, August 17 2014, 12:04 PM CDT

Authorities say no charges are expected to be filed against a South Texas man who fatally shot a robber who entered his home.

The Monitor of McAllen reports that the robber entered a home near the town of Elsa armed with various weapons.

Once inside the home, the robber struggled with three men who were inside.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office says one of the men in the home took away one of the robber's guns and used it against him.

Texas law allows a person to legally use deadly force when confronted with imminent danger while inside their home, business or vehicle.

Investigators are still trying to determine if there was anyone else involved in the Friday night robbery attempt.
