ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man suspected in a St. Louis home invasion was critically injured after being shot by a resident of the home, and a police spokesman said the suspect was not expected to survive.

Police spokesman Richard Wilkes said the suspect was taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital and was in very critical condition Thursday morning. His name has not been released.

UPDATE: From the December 8, 2007 St. Post-Dispatch:

A man who was fatally shot in a home invasion with two others in the Baden neighborhood was identified by St. Louis police today as Darin Breeland, 38, of the 1900 block of John Avenue.

Police said Breeland died at an area hospital about 4 p.m. Friday. Breeland suffered gunshot wounds to his left foot, right upper arm and left eye.

The attempted robbery in the 8900 block of Halls Ferry Road — near the Halls Ferry circle — took place about 10:40 p.m. Wednesday when three men broke into a house in an attempted robbery, police said.

Breeland was one of the would-be robbers, police said, fought with one of the occupants and was shot. A .357-caliber handgun was beneath his body; it had not been fired.
