LYNCHBURGÑA suspected burglar was fatally wounded at a Lynchburg area restaurant after being surprised by the owner.
According to Harris County SheriffÕs Office Sgt. Larry Davis, who is assigned to the Homicide division, on April 27, at approximately 11:50 p.m., the owner of Four Corners Bar-B-Q, Donald Prejeant, was contacted at his home by the alarm company that monitors his business and told of possible entry intoÊthe business.
ÒThe owner left his home and drove theÊshort distance to the B-B-Q stand and observed a broken window and a male inside his business,Ó Davis said.
Concerned because Prejeant knew that guns were stored on the premises, he fired a single .45 caliber round at the suspect, fatally wounding him, Davis added.
