Normally it’s the victim of a crime that makes the call to 911. However, in this case, the suspect himself called emergency services after being shot by his would-be victim.
According to local media reports:
A homeowner made a quick decision and shot a man accused of breaking in. That suspect nearly made a quick getaway, but then did something unexpected.
The suspect barely made it a block near Southwest 50th and May before he apparently had to make a life or death decision.
Police said he called 911.
Based on a local newscast, residents of the area say that property crimes have increased in frequency in recent years. The homeowner even believes that the suspect who was shot may have broken into his home before.
