SPRINGTOWN, Texas — A home break-in suspect in Texas made his own call to police when a man living in the house came after him with a gun, police say.

A Parker County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman said a 38-year-old Springtown-area man and his wife were awakened early Tuesday by an intruder in their bedroom. The intruder ran from the house but the husband followed with a gun and caught up with him as he was getting into a pickup truck, the Forth Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported.
