WOODSBORO — A Woodsboro man was shot in the leg by an intruder who was attempting to burglarize the residence in the 100 block of Shirmer Road on Thursday, Feb. 14.

Later arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation and assault with a deadly weapon was William Rogers, 43, of Corpus Christi.

The suspect was described at the scene as being six feet tall and weighing about 275 pounds.

He was wearing a blue work shirt with “Baker Hughes” on one side and “Will” on the other, according to the incident report.

A neighbor of the victim called 911 and told the dispatcher that the victim had a gunshot wound to the leg.

Aransas and San Patricio counties were advised that the suspect was armed and seen driving a white Ford pickup, heading east on Farm-to-Market Road 136 out of Woodsboro.

At first, HALO-Flight was called, but later the flight was canceled because the victim was up and walking around.

The victim later went to Refugio Memorial Hospital, according to the incident report.

San Patricio County law enforcement spotted the vehicle and matched the description of the suspect. William Rogers was detained.

Deputy Martin Deleon met the San Patricio deputy to pick up the suspect at U.S. Highway 35 and Loop 202 near Gregory.

The gun used in the shooting was a .380 Walther.

Milton’s towed the pickup.

The suspect was taken to the Refugio County Jail.

I would like to ask, Do you investigate the facts before you print a story?? Or do you print what sales papers? I am very upset to read such lies, and would like to say You hurt all people involved when the truth is not told. I would like too see you run a correction to this story after you look at the facts sure it won't sound as good as this story and probably won't sale as many papers , but you will then have reported the truth and thats far more rewarding in Gods eyes . I urge all parties to be honest , tell the truth and stop covering up your actions, that lead to this
