UPDATED: 4:16 pm CDT March 14, 2011

MISSOURI CITY, Texas -- A homeowner shot a burglar to death inside his Missouri City house Monday, officials said.

Missouri City police said the shooting happened in the 900 block of Bolton Drive shortly after 1 p.m.

Thieves steal Christmas gifts from single mothers car trunk.

“I called 911,” she said. “I was told they will not even take a report
on that because it wasn't an in-progress crime, and I wasn't hurt.”


She said she went online at tulsapolice.com and filed a report to support her insurance claim.

A single mother who had been buying her children's Christmas toys since July found the gifts gone and her car filled with garbage.
