SAPD: Homeowner blasts burglar with shotgun

SAN ANTONIO -- Two suspected burglars have two problems following an overnight break-in: injuries and criminal charges.

San Antonio Police said the two unnamed suspects broke into a man's home in the 500 block of Cumberland Road. He met his intruders with a shotgun.

Investigators said the man hit one of the suspect's over the head with a shotgun, then shot the other suspect after he claimed he had a gun.

Police said both suspects escaped on foot, but were picked up by family members and taken to a local hospital. One man was being treated at the Children's Hospital of San Antonio for a head injury from the victim's shotgun. The other suspect was taken to SAMMC with a shotgun wound.

The homeowner is not expected to face criminal charges. Police said no one else was in the home at the time of the shooting.

Both suspects face burglary charges.
