Homeowner shoots burglar

A Bossier City homeowner shot an intruder early today after he came home and found the man burglarizing his house, police said.

Police said they would not arrest the homeowner.

The shooting happened just after 3 a.m. at a house on Lillian Street near Isle of Capri Casino. Police said the homeowner caught a man rummaging through his belongings, got a handgun and fired a shot, hitting the intruder in the lower part of the leg.

Police said the burglar ran off but an officer followed a trail of blood and found him in the back yard of a house on nearby Robert E. Lee Place.

Ronald Reeder, 44, of Bossier City was taken to LSU Hospital for treatment. Police said he had lost a lot of blood but is expected to recover.

Reeder will be booked for aggravated burglary when he's released from the hospital, police said. Aggravated burglary charges will be filed because Reeder stole a gun from the house, police said.
