AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man shot in Hays County after breaking into a home on Jan. 10 is now dead.
His father tells us 25-year-old Randall Dorsett took his own life earlier this month.
Police say Dorsett was shot after he broke into a home in Dripping Springs. A mother of three was home at the time, and on the phone with 911.
Authorities say she shot Dorsett with a 44-magnum handgun in self-defense, when he wouldn’t leave. Dorsett was hit in the abdomen and airlifted to UMCB for treatment.
Dorsett’s father told us his son battled bi-polar disorder and was manic at the time of the home invasion.
