burglary suspect was sent running for his life when a 76-year-old Florida homeowner heard his wife’s screams and began shooting, according to investigators. The intruder was wounded but survived to be arrested in the street by deputies, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reported in a news release. The homeowner was not hurt, but his wife suffered non-life threatening injuries in the attack, officials said....

Deputies were summoned to the residential neighborhood by reports of a man standing in the road and “yelling.” “While deputies were responding to the initial call, a second 911 call was received at 3:23 a.m. at 208 Bath Club Boulevard North, reporting a residential burglary,” the sheriff’s office said. “Upon arrival, deputies located (a man) in the roadway on Bath Club Boulevard with a single gunshot wound.” The wounded 51-year-old man also proved to be their burglary suspect, officials said. He is accused of gaining entry in a home by smashing out a front window with a rock, detectives say. “Once inside the residence, (he) encountered (a 74-year-old woman) and began to struggle with her physically,” the sheriff’s office said. “(Her husband) heard her scream his name in distress and saw her struggling with (a man). Fearing for his and his wife’s safety, (he) retrieved his firearm and shot (the man) once in the right shoulder.”

According to a recent news release, Boise Police responded to a prowler call for service just after 2:30 a.m. at a home on the 6000 block of W. Cassia St.

Upon arrival, officers learned the suspect, 22-year-old Khynndyl Lasley from Boise, was barricaded in the furnace room and being held at gunpoint by the resident.

Home surveillance video indicates Lasley walked up to the house, checked the door handle, opened the door and attempted to steal items from the home. Lasley was confronted by the homeowner at gunpoint. The homeowner gave commands to Lasley to leave, but he refused, closed the door and barricaded himself until officers arrived.

Officers set up containment and called out several commands for Lasley to surrender, but he would not comply and remained barricaded in the room. Officers successfully executed a plan just before 3:30 a.m., safely opening the door and revealing the suspect. Officers used a 40 mm non-lethal round and deployed a K9 on Lasley before he was taken into custody.
