After having already suffered a break-in at his home three weeks ago, Dan Reynolds, a marine veteran from Katy, Texas, decided to be well prepared should a criminal try to rob him again.

So, when Reynolds heard glass shattering in his bedroom on Monday, he grabbed a 12 gauge shotgun he had purchased when his Glock was stolen during the previous robbery.

Reynolds shot the would-be criminal in the chest. The perpetrator fled leaving a trail of blood out into the street, where police believe he got into a car and left the scene.

Reynolds told others who might be considering breaking into someone’s home, “That’s what you get.”
