A homeowner fatally shot a man as he climbed through a window and into his home Monday afternoon, Dallas police say.

The shooting took place at a home on the 2200 block of Morrell Avenue at about 4:15 p.m.

Police said the homeowner heard a noise inside his residence and shot a man, later identified as 33-year-old Deyfon Pipkins, aka BJ, as he climbed through the window.

“The homeowner heard a noise. He came around the corner, saw the individual trying to climb into the window and according to the law, the castle doctrine, he used deadly force,” said Sgt. Calvin Johnson, with the Dallas Police Department.

According to police, the homeowner then called 911. When police arrived, officer’s found Pipkins’ body lying lifeless in the window.

Pipkins mother, Catherine, said she had been called to the scene by her daughter-in-law and said the crime sounded like something her son would do.

“Yeah, it’s something he would do … Somebody called me and said my son got shot that’s the reason I’m standing here,” said Catherine Pipkins. “Somebody called her [her daughter-in-law] and told her he had got shot. She said, ‘Momma you need to sit down, they said BJ just got killed.’ That’s the reason I’m here.”

The woman said her son did not live at the home.

Pipkins had a lengthy criminal history in Dallas that included numerous charges for theft, trespassing and possession of a controlled substance.

Police said the shooting is a Castle Doctrine case and the Dallas County Grand Jury will decide whether or not the homeowner faces any charges.

Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"In actuality, black people will go to substandard hospitals, wait in long lines behind illegal immigrants, and be treated like non-citizens, as there simply won’t be enough healthcare to go around. There will be the occasional lucky few who will receive treatment, and we will parade them around like championship rings, thus continuing the ruse. As you can see, we’ve left out nothing. We touch more on this in Chapter 10: Promise Everything, Deliver Nothing. If for some reason we happen to run out of blacks, we will be able to apply our trade to the Mexicans with little disruptions. Plans are already underway for our next edition in this “How To” series: How to be a Latino "Race Pimp for Fun and Profit…even if you’re Illegal."

    I love the fact that his mom wasn’t surprised and actually said “sounds like something he’d do”. Wow! Great parenting! Bet mama’s got a couple dozen more just like him at home, too. One thing we need to do in this country – never let anyone achieve a “lengthy” criminal history or “numerous” charges for thefts, etc. After 2 felonies or 10 misdemeanors, we grind you up into food to feed the scum in our prison system. I’m so f’ing sick of reading about how “the perpetrator was on parole for… ” or “had a long history of…. “. Society needs to eliminate the bastards when they still have a “short history”.

    Incidents of defensive gun use are not uncommon. (low est. 100,000 – high est 2.5 milion / yr.) They rarely make it to major media headlines though, since they don’t fit the assumed narrative of “guns are bad.” I wonder if the media is not doing a disservice to the criminals of the world by under reporting on how dangerous it is to break into a residence? If the 100 thousand to 2.5 million defensive gun uses in the country got the kind of coverage Sandy Hook received – potential criminals would begin to think committing a crime was a suicide wish.

    Indictments? Why would there be any consideration for an indictment? Stupid criminal got what he deserved. No remorse, no sympathy, no charges for this guy. If he were trying to turn his life around he should have been looking for a job instead of trying to rob a neighbor.
