Scrap yard owner shoots burglary suspect in armpit

A scrap yard owner shot a burglary suspect Thursday evening in South Dallas. The wounded man is being treated at a local hospital and is expected to survive. Police are trying to determine his identity.

The business owner told police that he caught the man taking a radiator from his scrap yard in the 4900 block of South Lamar Street. When the owner told the man he was calling police, the suspect dropped the radiator, said he wasn’t going back to jail and began walking toward him.

The business owner told police that he fired two shots in the air and that a third struck the suspect’s armpit as he climbed over a fence.

The man was caught nearby.
