Phoenix Burglary Suspect Injured

Well if there isn’t enough scary stuff going on in the world today. like terrorism, IsIs and major wars. People just can’t live peacefully or do what’s right.

A Phoenix police officer says that a suspect was shot on a Saturday morning. It wasn’t by the police though, it was by the resident who had reportedly interrupted a burglary. Talk about a scary moment for both parties.

The officers were quick to respond to the scene. It happened near the 83rd Avenue and McDowell Road. It happened very early, just before daylight at five o’clock in the morning.

One of the nearby neighbor’s say that he could hear the gunshots. He said he could also hear someone screaming “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”. At first the neighbor thought it was a young child screaming at first. According to the reports, it was actually a woman who was in hiding.

One of the residents told the police that they did see a woman and she was burglarizing a work vehicle and had an altercation with her.

The Police say that the resident did fire some gunshots at the suspect and was able to hit her at least one time.  Luckily the suspect suffered from non-life threatening injuries, according to the police reports.
