A Comal county man was reportedly forced to shoot and kill a suspected burglar early Thursday morning at a trailer park near Canyon Lake.

The deadly confrontation happened just after 4 a.m. at Chapman’s Park located in the 100 Block of Chapman Parkway.

According to the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, the suspected burglar was armed with a bat when he was confronted by a resident.

“He said, ‘What are you doing here?’ and the guy said, ‘It’s none of your business,’ and he started walking towards him with a baseball bat,” said Walker Chapman, the owner of the mobile home park.

Chapman said his tenant had no choice but to shoot the intruder who was apparently trying to break into a neighbor’s trailer.

The man heard the suspect breaking glass on a pickup truck parked in front of his neighbor’s trailer. The man grabbed his shot gun and confronted the suspect.
