A man police say was trying to rob a house ended up in the hospital after he was shot by the homeowner.

It happened just after midnight Friday morning in the 2800 block of Corbitt Street.

Police say the homeowner entered the house and discovered 28-year-old Fredrick Dickerson inside. Police say the homeowner grabbed a gun and shot Dickerson in both legs.

Dickerson managed to run away but was caught just around the corner.

Police say he could be connected to other crimes in the area.

"Our detectives did locate some other items on his person that may have been stolen in other crimes," said Shreveport Police Corporal Bill Goodin.

Dickerson was taken to LSU Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. After he was treated for his wounds he was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on a charge of attempted burglary.
