Roosevelt Jackson, 23, Bayou Body Count No. 47

A Harris County grand jury will have to decide the fate of a homeowner who claims he killed in order to protect all of his stuff from getting stolen.

Police say that Roosevelt Jackson, 23, broke into a home on the 300 block of Blueberry Lane, not far from Independence Heights, a little before 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The homeowner was sleeping, but woke up when he heard Jackson rumbling about inside the house.

Fearing for his life, the man shot Jackson dead on sight, police say. The homeowner was not injured.

The homeowner was not immediately arrested and the case will be reviewed by a grand jury to decide if charges are warranted.
