SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — A man was shot by his ex-girlfriend’s dad while trying to break into her home in Santa Ana, police said.
Robert White, 38, of Garden Grove was wounded about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at a home in the 1600 block of McFadden Avenue, Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.
Police had already gone to the home once on Saturday night in response to a report of a domestic dispute involving White, Bertagna said. He left the location before officers arrived.
White returned later that night and got into the house through a window, he said.
“That’s when the father fired his weapon, striking the suspect,” Bertagna said.
White was taken to a hospital, where he is in stable condition. The father was interviewed by a detective and released.
The woman’s father will not face any criminal charges in the shooting, but White faces a burglary charge.
