Home Invader Shot With Own Sawed-Off Shotgun 6-03-2010

Flint Township police are investigating after an elderly man got a hold of a sawed-off shotgun while a 35-year-old man burglarized his bedroom.
Police were called to the Brookstone apartment complex on Drummond Drive around 5 a.m. Thursday.
Investigators said the intruder, a Flint resident, had forcibly entered the second-floor apartment. Both residents of the home, a 70-year-old man and a 63-year-old woman, were asleep at the time.
Police said the suspect gained entry by climbing onto the balcony and entered through a screen door. Police said the sliding glass door was partially open.
The man then entered the woman’s bedroom, roused her at gunpoint and began to assault her, according to police.
Her screams awakened her living partner, who was sleeping on a couch in the living room.
Police said the man entered the room and saw the suspect set down his gun while rummaging through the bedroom. The man then grabbed the gun and shot the suspect.
Investigators said the suspect then grabbed the gun from the man and fled the apartment.
Officers said they later discovered him at a nearby apartment building.
The suspect was taken into custody and is being treated at a Flint Township hospital while under police guard.
Authorities said charges are pending against the 35-year-old suspect.
