Texas Officer Killed by Homeowner Who Thought he was Intruder

A Texas police officer was responding to a burglar alarm when the homeowner mistook him for an intruder and fatally shot him Tuesday morning, reports said.

The Midland police officer, Nathan Heidelberg, 28, died around 8:30 a.m. at a local hospital. The homeowner, David Charles Wilson, was arrested Tuesday and charged with manslaughter before being released on bond. Wilson’s attorney authorities that his client believed that his family was experiencing a home invasion and “only fired his weapon to protect his family.” Heidelberg was a five-year veteran of the Midland Police Department.
