Clinton Township, Michigan

From December 3, 2007 channel 4 Detroit:

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Clinton Township man woke up Monday to the sound of a burglar in his condo and chased him away with a gun.

He thought that would be the end of it, until the man came out of nowhere and charged at him. That’s when the gun fired.

According to police, the man had returned home after a 10-day hunting trip. He heard a noise and chased the burglar away with a gun.

The condo owner then knocked on his neighbor’s door and asked them to call police. That’s when the suspect came back and charged at him.

The condo owner shouted that he had a gun, police said, but the suspect tried to grab it away.

The two wrestled for the weapon and the gun discharged twice — the first shot hitting the ground and the second struck the suspect in the leg.

Police arrived shortly afterward and took the suspect into custody. Police expect the burglar to be arraigned Tuesday.
