SAN ANTONIO -- An alleged burglar was shot by a homeowner in a West Side neighborhood early Friday evening.

Police say the suspect tried to break into a storage shed outside a home on the 100 block of Overhill Drive, near West Woodlawn Avenue and Bandera Road around 6 p.m. Friday. The homeowner pulled a gun and opened fire on the suspect.

The suspect, a 34-year-old Hispanic man, was hit twice in the leg. He was taken to University Hospital. His condition was not known.

The homeowner had installed motion sensors after multiple break-ins. The sensors tipped him off to the intruder. Police say the homeowner is not facing any charges.
