Teen thieves shot at while burglarizing a West Side home

One teen was shot in the hip and another is on the run after a burglary attempt from a house being renovated.

The shooting occurred Tuesday shortly after 1 a.m. in the 200 block of Early Trail.

According to police, the contractor had employees staying inside the house after thieves had targeted the home.

The employee involved in the shooting told police he heard someone breaking into the home and shot at the pair because he thought they were armed.

The injured teen was transported to University Hospital and is expected to be okay.

Police say they know the identity of the other burglar and it is just a matter of catching him.

Both teens face burglary charges. No charges are expected to file against the employee.
