Nikusubila N A Makwangwala

Makwangwala was shot and killed while in the process of burglarizing a Forney home.

The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of Nikusubila N A Makwangala, a 46-year-old Dallas resident, after he was shot and killed by a woman he was attempting to burglarize last Thursday morning.

On Thursday, May 23 around 9:45 a.m., the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a burglary in parogress in the 8000 blk of FM 2757 in an unincorporated area of Kaufman County near Forney. The female caller said she was awakened by someone she did not recognize banging on her front door. 

When the homeowner didn’t answer, shortly thereafter the caller said she heard the back door being kicked in at which time she called 911 and retreated to another room and locked herself in a closet.

The caller remained on the line with 911 operators until she was confronted by the intruder at which time she shot him. She was uninjured.

By the time officers from the Sheriff’s Department arrived on the scene, Makwangwala was dead. The investigation remains ongoing.
