GALVESTON, Texas -- Police say a Southeast Texas woman whipped out a paintball gun and opened fire with distinctive yellow hue to stop a burglary suspect.
Galveston police say a 53-year-old man who sometimes mowed the woman's yard was arrested inside her home.
Bond has been set at $40,000 for Elvis Alexander of Galveston on a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft. Online jail records Monday did not list an attorney for Alexander.
The Galveston County Daily News reports 34-year-old Carrie King called police Friday to say an intruder was in her home and she was hiding.
An arriving officer heard the firing of a paintball gun and the sound of impact.
