A home invasion turned violent for an intruder after the apartment dweller took aim in the dark and shot him.
Police quickly caught up with Edwin D. Calligan, 23, of the 500 block of Leith Street, after he was driven by his companions to Lutheran ER Statewood.
Due to the serious nature of his wound – a gunshot to the right upper thigh that exited his posterior – Calligan was transported to a regular hospital, court records said.
Calligan was charged Monday with burglary with a deadly weapon, carrying a handgun without a license, residential break-in and criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon.
Calligan entered the apartment at Black Hawk Apartments on the city's northeast side about 4 p.m. March 31 after breaking down the front door, court documents said.
The man who shot him was with his girlfriend when they they heard glass break and realized it was the front door.
The man grabbed his Tactical AR-15 pistol after hearing what he thought were multiple people entering his apartment and took a position on one knee, pointing his firearm toward his bedroom doorway, documents said.
Calligan appeared wearing all black and a mask and came into the doorway pointing a semi-automatic handgun.In the accused's picture, you can see he face tattoos. I am so surprised.
