HOUSTON—An alleged car burglar was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound after residents in a north Houston neighborhood tracked him and two others down early Wednesday morning, police said.

The shooting was reported along the North Freeway at E. Tidwell Road shortly after 4 a.m.

Houston police arrived to find the injured suspect on the side of the frontage road. He apparently was shot and dragged by a vehicle, although it wasn’t immediately clear who shot him.

Officers said it all started when the suspect and another man, were caught breaking into cars in a nearby neighborhood. Police took a woman in custody who was with the two men, but her involvement is not clear. Residents followed the trio to the gas station where an altercation occurred and shots were fired.

Workplace violence. Thieves need to be better protected. Where’s OSHA when you need it?

Probably living it up at a feral government efficiency improvement conference in Hawaii.

If the vehicle that shot and dragged this criminal is owned by a white Hispanic, can they charge the owner?

The horror, the horror.... The victims fought back and did what the cops couldn’t, they put an end to the stealing.

They should have shot him again, then drug him a few more miles.
