Sheriff's deputies in Parker County responded to a bizarre call for help on Tuesday from a burglary suspect who said a homeowner was threatening to shoot him.

The incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Lelon Lane in Springtown.

Homeowner James Gerow said he awoke to find a man wearing dark clothes and a hoodie inside his house. He grabbed his gun and followed the man out to a truck that was parked in his driveway.

With gun in hand, Gerow convinced the man to drop his keys. Then told his wife to call 911 and waited for deputies to arrive.

"Yeah, hurry up now. He says my husband's fixing to shoot him," she said on the call.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the suspect, later identified as 41-year-old Christopher Lance Moore, also called for help while sitting in his pickup truck.

"I'm not sure. I'm out in the country somewhere and some guy's got a gun on me," he said on the call.

When deputies arrived they arrested Moore for burglary of habitation, a second-degree felony.

Gerow said while investigators questioned Moore he admitted he had "bad intensions."
