A
Houston man shot and killed another man who was allegedly trying to
break into his car outside his home on Friday, according to police.

The shooting took place at around 6 a.m. in southwest Houston, KPRC-TV reports.

The
man told police that he heard some commotion before going outside and
finding an unidentified man holding a shovel trying to break into his
vehicle. He opened fire and shot the suspect. Police did not say how
many rounds were fired or how many times the burglary suspect was shot.

The suspect was rushed to a local hospital and was later declared dead.

In
a shocking twist, KPRC reports the homeowner is actually in the U.S.
illegally and owns a gun — both of which are against the law. Police
have not released any names.

The illegal alien and his roommate were brought in for questioning about the incident.

The
ongoing investigation will now be handed over to Immigration and
Customs Enforcement (ICE). The District Attorney’s Office will consider
whether or not charges will be filed in the case.

In May, a three-judge panel in Denver upheld federal gun laws passed by Congress that prohibits illegal aliens from owning guns.

From a previous Reuters report:

“Even
those admitted on non-immigrant visas … are prohibited from having
firearms and ammunition unless they secure a special waiver or happen to
be hunters or diplomatic or law-enforcement officials here on
business,” the judges wrote.


The case stemmed from the conviction of Emmanuel Huitron-Guizar, who
was sentenced to 18 months in prison under a federal law that bars gun
ownership by illegal aliens.


Huitron-Guizar’s lawyer, Ronald Pretty, told Reuters he will appeal the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    The illegal alien shouldn't have been here, he shouldn't have owned a gun and although I'm glad to see one less criminal is in this world, there should also be one less illegal alien in the US.
