From KLTV in Tyler, Texas about a home invasion in Van Zandt County (just east of Dallas):

. . . According to the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office, at 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, they received a 911 call from a homeowner on Texas State Highway 19 north of Canton, in rural Van Zandt County. The caller said she had just shot a man who was attempting to force entry into her home.

Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived a short time later and identified the deceased suspect as Christopher Ray Foster, 37, of Edgewood. Foster, who had a lengthy criminal history, was recently released on a Personal Recognizance Bond from the Van Zandt County Jail for Failure to Comply with Registration Requirements as a Sex Offender.

Investigators with the Sheriff’s Office determined that Foster was in the process of forcing entry into a side door of the home when the homeowner fatally shot him. . . .
