Miami-Dade, Florida

From NBC6 of July 20, 2008
Would-Be Burglar Shot

A homeowner shot a would-be burglar in Southwest Miami-Dade on Sunday, police said.

Police said the man shot was one of two thieves who tried to burglarize a house in the 2400 block of 117th Avenue about 2 a.m.

He was taken to the hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. The second man apparently got away.

Neighbors said the house, which sits on the side of the street nearest the interstate, has been hit by thieves before.

Police said two children, ages 5 and 9, were inside the house when the culprits tried to break in.

No charges had been filed against the homeowner Sunday.
