Man shot by owner charged in burglary

A man wounded early Monday has been charged with burglary.

Antoine D. Whitehead, 19, faces up to eight years in jail if convicted of the charge.

Whitehead was arrested at The Methodist Hospitals in Gary where he was being treated for a gunshot wound.

Mustafa Alayah, owner of Dave’s Tire Shop, told Detective Dan Callahan he heard noises at his business and saw shadows, then fired his gun.

Investigators found the cash register at the shop had been opened by intruders, court records state.
