WA:Homeowner Shoots Intruder

A 63-year-old man shot a burglary suspect in the leg about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday night when he returned to his home in the 6900 block of Puget Beach Road and found the intruder, according to the Thurston County Sheriff's Office.

The man had returned to his home with his wife, and armed himself with a handgun when he heard noises on the second floor of his home, Thurston County Sheriff's Lt. Greg Elwin said.

When the homeowner confronted the burglar at the top of the stairs, the suspect either attempted to assault, or did assault the homeowner, Elwin said. The homeowner fired a single shot which struck the suspect in the thigh, Elwin added.
