A would-be Grand Prairie home invader apparently shot himself in the process and died at the scene early Tuesday, police said.
Police Lt. John Brimmer said Cameron Sands, 19, was lying dead in the driveway when officers arrived at a home in the 2800 block of Garden Grove Road about 5:30 a.m.
The homeowner told police that the man tried to kick in his door and fired a shot at him.
Brimmer said it appears that sometime while trying to break in, the man shoved the small-caliber semi-automatic into his waistband and it fired, striking him in the lower abdomen. He then apparently staggered to the driveway, where police found him.
Police said he was dead at the scene.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner listed Sands' address as an appartment in the 2800 of Alta Mesa Boulevard in Fort Worth.
