HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after being shot with his own gun while struggling with a burglary suspect he confronted outside the garage of his Harris County home.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says when deputies arrived early Friday morning they found 69-year-old Donald Frazier dead in the garage.

Authorities say Frazier and his wife were awakened when their backup generator started running. Frazier then noticed entry door to their garage was open and investigated, confronting the man on the patio.

Authorities say the suspect, 30-year-old Daniel Durham, was found walking a few blocks away with blood on his clothing and legs. He admitted to the shooting.

Authorities say a murder charge is pending against Durham, who remained jailed Saturday on $100,000 bond. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
