BULLET WOUNDS DON’T LIE
Police were called to 3118 Jefferson St. just after 4 a.m. on Jan. 2 regarding an attempted burglary in progress. The victim said two males had forced open the door to his residence, so he fired a handgun at them. They fled in a Chrysler Lebaron. About 30 minutes later dispatch received a call from Mercy Hospital regarding a man with a gunshot wound to his arm, accompanied by a juvenile. The injured man claimed he’d gotten into an argument and was shot. Police discovered a vehicle matching that of the victim’s description was parked at the injured man’s residence. The man admitted he and his juvenile friend had attempted the burglary, and that’s how he was shot. They were both charged with second-degree burglary. CV
