After begging 911 for help, homeowner shoots intruder

undefined
Tuesday, August 26, 2014

In the span of less than 10 minutes, the life of Quintin Wood was forever changed. And so was the life of the man believed to have kicked in the door of Wood's northwest Harris County home.

Around 10 a.m. Tuesday, the postal carrier who's on medical leave was resting before a physical therapy appointment. That's when he heard the doorbell ringing repeatedly. Then the loud banging on the door began.

"I knew this was going to be bad," Wood said. Four years ago he returned home to find his home had been burglarized. The burglar was later caught, but his vigilance on home security remained high.

"I got my gun and walked out of the room. Then I saw the door was open, and he was in my house," Wood explained.

It was even more terrifying because Wood said the intruder was in another room, and he couldn't see him.

Wood had already called 911, begging for help because a break-in was underway.

For anywhere from one to three minutes, he said he waited behind a wall for the man. And then they both saw each other.

"He kept coming at me," so I fired once, Wood said.

The suspect collapsed in the tile entry way of the two-story home. The door had withstood his kicks, but the door frame did not. It was shattered.

Wood was overcome by how a quiet morning had been shattered as well. When asked about the impact the shooting had had on his own life, he couldn't answer, as tears filled his eyes.

After a couple of minutes, he returned. The suspect was on the floor, bleeding. By then deputies had arrived.

"He asked to call his girlfriend," Wood said. "He kept saying 'I'm a thief, I'm a thief.'"

The suspect was said to be in his mid-20s. He was taken by Life Flight helicopter for emergency treatment.

The day was far worse than the one four years ago when Wood's house was burglarized, his possessions missing. "There are no words to describe this."

Neighbors say they see it as one of their own taking up for himself.

"He did the right thing," one said. "We're a community of older homeowners... and we're not sitting ducks."

 Naples Gun School - 5 stars David is a phenomenal instructor/teacher! He’s passionate & loves what he does. I really appreciate his time & attention to details in regards to the conceal carry class.    When he is at the range with you, he makes sure you feel confident & understand everything you should be doing.   He & his wife are a great team.

Naples Gun School - 5 stars I am an attorney from New York and currently residing in Florida. I have no experience with guns and never thought of owning one. Nevertheless, I wanted to understand gun culture and gun issues in Florida especially now that I am a permanent Florida resident. David Rich's class was extremely informative and David clearly demonstrated not only his knowledge of guns and gun safety but more importantly for me, he provided the legal framework and ramifications and responsibilities of gun use and ownership. Overall, the class was thoroughly worthwhile and enjoyable. Dean Fong

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  This was a very good class. I did not have to take it, as I am a Veteran, however it is a good idea. I learned a lot about Florida Law I did not know. It will in the long run help keep you out of trouble. David was very patient with my wife when we live fired, because she has arthritis and had a hard time pulling the trigger in double action mode. Good Job David thanks so much..Joseph Hohenthaner

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  The class was engaging and as fast paced as it can be. The instructor was knowledgeable and worked well with a class spanning all the levels of experience and age you can imagine. I also felt it was fairly priced, especially as you just had to bring yourself and an ID - all other supplies were, er, supplied.Cliff Elam

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  I've been a repeat customer for FFL transfers with Naples Gun School for quite some time. Dave's customer service and knowledge are second to none. After speaking with Dave for a few moments, you start to feel as if you have known him for quite a while. I look forward to continuing my business when the new location opens. - Robert Boyette

I really enjoyed the class yesterday, and it was very nice to meet David and Ginny. David is very knowledgeable, helpful, and best of all: has a sense of humor. I was more nervous than I thought I would be because this was the first time in my life that I've ever shot a semi-automatic weapon. David lives and breathes this stuff and his presence and ease with weapons was very calming for me when I was at the range. Ginny was also very supportive throughout the whole class. Thank you guys so much! It's a pleasure and I will be back to purchase supplies from you! - Shenandoah Webb
