A Camp County, Texas, homeowner told sheriff's deputies he heard a truck with a loud exhaust driving down a dead-end road in front of his house at 4:30 a.m. Saturday.
Then the homeowner said he heard the truck's engine turn off in front of his house.
Shortly afterward, the homeowner told deputies he heard a noise outside and then saw a man breaking into his storage shed.
With that, the homeowner grabbed his shotgun, went outside, and confronted the man who was breaking into the shed, which contained the homeowner's tools, deputies said.
The homeowner then shot the intruder, deputies said. But then the intruder got back up — and soon the pair were struggling for the homeowner's shotgun, the sheriff's office account stated.
