OWASSO, Okla. - An Owasso homeowner took matters into his own hands when he heard a burglar breaking in to his house over the weekend.
The Owasso Police Department received a 911 call around 8:15 p.m. Sunday about a break-in in progress, and before officers arrived they received word the homeowner shot at the suspect, according to OPD spokesman Sgt. Nick Boatman.
Upon arrival, police found the suspect, Timothy Wall, on the back patio with a gunshot wound to the thigh. He was treated at the scene, then taken to a nearby hospital.
Boatman says Wall is in custody at the hospital and will likely face charges for first-degree burglary.
