Worker Shoots Burglary Suspect During Break-In

A worker at a Little Rock motorcycle dealership shot a burglary suspect early Tuesday morning.

Around 5:00 a.m., police responded to a burglar alarm at BMW Motorcycles of Little Rock on Jones Street.

An employee, Julius Ceasaer, told officers that he was sleeping in the business when he heard a loud noise. He then saw a dark colored Dodge pick up backing into the business. Ceasaer said that he grabbed his shotgun, approached the front door and saw a man looking around at some of the motorcycles that were on display.

When the suspect, 43-year-old Haywood Patterson, saw Ceasaer, he ran out of the business.

Two other suspects inside the pick up then drove away. Ceasaer saw Patterson crouching down outside. Ceasaer told police he feared Patterson may have had a weapon, so he fired shots at him.

Patterson was wounded in the upper body and face. He attempted to flee the area, but was caught shortly after. He was transported to UAMS where his injuries are life threatening.

No charges have been filed at this time and detectives are working to identify the other two suspects in the truck
