A home invasion suspect was in critical condition this morning after being shot by a homeowner.
Fort Wayne Police were called around 3:15 a.m. to 4730 Reed St., where officers found a man wearing a ski mask on the ground. He had gunshot wounds and a weapon nearby, according to police spokeswoman Raquel Foster.
The man, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
Detectives believe the man was breaking in to the south-side home when the homeowners woke up, Foster said. One of the homeowners, armed with a gun, opened fire on the alleged burglar near the home’s front door, Foster said.
I guess the homeowner should be happy helmke isnt still in office.
