    Texas woman shot a suspected burglar with paintball gun Friday.

    Police say a Southeast Texas woman whipped out a paint ball gun and opened fire with distinctive yellow hue to stop a burglary suspect.

    Galveston police say a 53-year-old man who sometimes mowed the woman's yard was arrested inside her home.

    Bond has been set at $40,000 for Elvis Alexander of Galveston on a charge of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit theft. Online jail records Monday did not list an attorney for Alexander.

    The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/O44Vcn ) reports 34-year-old Carrie King called police Friday to say an intruder was in her home and she was hiding.

    An arriving officer heard the firing of a paint ball gun and the sound of impact.

    Police say Alexander was struck several times. He did not require medical help.
