    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?

TYLER (KYTX) - Smith County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call of a white male victim who had been shot near the 14000 block of Highway 271 North Friday morning.

Upon arrival of the responding patrol deputies, the white male was no longer at the location. Upon further investigation by the responding deputies, it was determined that the white male had been shot by a home owner in the immediate area.

It was further determined that two black males and the white male allegedly went to the residence to burglarize it. The burglary attempt occurred at approximately 4:00 am.

The home owners, a husband and wife, were awakened at approximately 4:00 am due to their dogs barking. Upon further investigation by the male homeowner, he observed the individuals outside of his garage. He then woke his wife up and both retrieved firearms and returned to near the garage where the individuals were located. A scuffle ensued once the male homeowner asked all of the individuals for their identification and told him he was calling the police.

The home owner and the white male were wrestling and as the alleged burglar attempted to escape, both homeowners fired in his direction. The alleged burglar was struck in the buttocks area most likely with a large caliber handgun.

The alleged burglar was taken to a Tyler hospital by private vehicle where he is being treated for the gunshot wound and is undergoing surgery. The injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

Smith County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene and detectives are continuing the investigation at this time and are attempting to locate the two black males who escaped the scene.

Additional information will be forwarded once it becomes available.
