(CBS 11 News) DALLAS For the second time in one month, a business owner in west Dallas has shot and killed a burglary suspect.
The second fatal shooting occurred in the 2000 block of Chalk Hill Road.
Dallas police believe James Walton was sleeping when his burglar alarm sounded late Saturday night.
Police say he found two suspects at his business, Texas Allied Welding Supply. He shot and killed the first suspect, 37-year-old Jimmy Gannon.
The second suspect was also shot, but was not seriously injured.
According to investigators, the two suspects may have been looking for copper.
Robert Brown, one of Walton's neighbors, said he's proud of the shooting. He said it brings "a sense of pride of your neighborhood, taking care of your own. I like it."
Last month, Walton shot and killed Raul Laureles after he tried to break into his business.
"People have the right to defend their property and their own life," said Dallas Police Sergeant Andrew Harvey. "We'll refer to the grand jury and make sure they hear [the case]."
Walton was questioned by police, but was not arrested.
