“He told me it was his home and his mother was inside,” she said, “but I said, ‘This is my house.’ So, I look up and see my door was broken. So I didn’t know what to do, but I started calling the police. He ran inside my place again and came out with two luggages.”
The suspect — described as an adult white male — reportedly ran down the street and broke into another home. That homeowner, a man, told the suspect he had a gun but said the man did not leave.
The homeowner shot the suspect in the torso. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital where he is reportedly in stable condition.MORE NEWS: Lancaster Woman Shariniesha Johnson Last Seen In May
