Fort Pierce Man Shoots Intruder Who Climbed In Window
Police said a Fort Pierce resident shot a man who climbed in through a bedroom window of the home.
Carlos Contreras was arrested Wednesday after he checked himself in to a Port St. Lucie medical facility to be treated for what he claimed was a stab wound from a screwdriver.
Fort Pierce police said Contreras was the same man who tried to burglarize Bulmaro Aguilar's home earlier that morning.
Officers were called to home on South 25th Street after Aguilar reported that he shot an intruder.
Aguilar told police that while he was at home, Contreras knocked on his door, but Aguilar didn't answer. Aguilar said Contreras climbed in through a bedroom window a few minutes later, so Aguilar got a gun from his brother's bedroom and shot him.
Police said Contreras fled after being shot.
