Chiloquin man shoots intruder

Authorities say a Chiloquin man shot and wounded a neighbor who tried to enter his house.

Sheriff Tim Evinger of Klamath County says 24-year-old Calvin Lee Brown used a pair of 18-inch wooden handles to break Monte Rompal's bedroom window, prompting the 77-year-old man to fire a shot.

Evinger says deputies later found Brown at a nearby house - asleep and drunk with a bullet wound to his left upper arm.

Chiloquin Ambulance took Brown to Sky Lakes Medical Center, where he was in stable condition Thursday.

Evinger says Brown will likely be charged with attempted burglary and criminal mischief.

District Attorney Ed Caleb says it's unlikely Rompal will face charges.
