A resident of the Crestview Apartments in Birmingham, Alabama, discovered a burglary suspect inside his apartment Monday night, police told WVTM-TV — and the burglary suspect soon discovered that you never know who's armed with a gun.
After an altercation, the resident shot the burglary suspect — a male — who was taken to a hospital with an injury that wasn't life threatening, police told the station. The suspect's age was unknown, WVTM said.
The resident wasn't injured, the station added.
WIAT-TV said the incident occurred around 9:20 p.m. and that the suspect will remain in police custody.
Detectives were questioning an individual at the scene, WVTM said, adding that there's no word if any arrests have been made.
