Taylor police said Quinnton Gault, 22, is charged with aggravated robbery after he broke into the home of James Baldwin.
Police said Gault used a knife to rob Baldwin of his wallet and cell phone. But as he left, Baldwin shot Gault with a 22-revolver. Gault ran away, but police found him hiding in the bushes near the home later with a gunshot wound to his side.
“You have the right to protect yourself in your home,” said Daniel Ramsay, assistant police chief. “We don’t encourage anyone to fire a firearm because we don’t know where the bullet is going to go.”
Doctors did remove the bullet from Gault. He was arrested after being discharged from the hospital.
If you ask me, Quinnton Gault got less than what he deserved….
