A teenage burglary suspect was fatally shot in an east Oak Cliff home this morning by the homeowner’s son.
Around 11 a.m., a resident in the 300 block of Hobson Street left her home, shortly before her adult son came by to drop off a newspaper, Dallas police say. As he pulled up, he saw the front door had been kicked in.
Police say 17-year-old Gabriel Flores, who was inside the home, pulled out a handgun and fired it at the resident’s son.
The son, who has a concealed-weapons permit, shot back and hit the teenager.
A short time later, Flores died at a local hospital.
Police have not identified the resident or her son and did not say whether the son was injured.
Officials say the case will probably be referred to a grand jury.

If it's as clear as the article leads you to believe, I'm surprised it's even going to a Grand Jury.

Of course, we probably don't know the whole story.

If there's nothing else, good for him.

By Texas law, it has to go to the Grand Jury. It is a homicide. So they must determine if there is probable cause to press charges or not in regard to the homicide.

In the case of the guy that killed the kid in Terrel when he and his buddies were trying to rob him, it didn't go to a Grand Jury.

I suppose it could be the call of the DA??

Hmm. Maybe I am in error. My understanding from our DA was that all homicides went through the Grand Jury as a matter of law. I can't find anything to back it up. If it was a matter of local policy and not law, my apologies for not researching properly before stating.

My understanding had been that the DA had to present the evidence to the Grand Jury for a homicide, but the DA did not have to request charges.

Okay, maybe somebody will straighten me out on this.
