Robber Shot In Tuscaloosa

Tuscaloosa, Alabama

From the October 2, 2008 Tuscaloosa News:

TUSCALOOSA | A burglary suspect remains in the hospital after a Crabtree Road resident shot him Sunday afternoon.

Shawn Lincoln, 22, of York is suspected of trying to burglarize the home around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

Investigators charged Lincoln with first-degree burglary Tuesday. He will be booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail when he is released from DCH Regional Medical Center, said Capt. Loyd Baker, commander of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit.

Baker said Lincoln approached three people in a yard and asked whether they had drugs. Baker said they told him no, and Lincoln then pulled a gun and forced them into the home. The 22-year-old resident had armed himself by the time they came inside and gunfire was exchanged.
