A Texas man shot and killed two men who were robbing his neighbor’s house while on the phone with a 911 dispatcher. He claimed the shooting was legal due to a new Texas law that allows the use of deadly force to protect personal property.

The following video is from CBS’s Early Show, broadcast on November 15, 2007.
