Homeowner shoots suspected burglar in the buttocks in Warren county, police say
FRANKLIN, Ohio (WXIX) - A man was shot in the buttocks after an attempted burglary in a residential area early Wednesday in Warren County, according to the City of Franklin Police Department.
Officers were dispatched to Park Avenue at 3:25 a.m. for a suspected burglar who was shot.
Jeffrey Carl, 36, of Franklin, allegedly broke into a home when the homeowner shot him in the buttocks, Franklin Lt. Brian Pacifico confirmed.
“The caller was unaware whether they hit the person or not and he was clearly scared on the phone and he did not want to get off the phone with dispatch until he saw an officer,” Lt. Pacifico explained.
911 call: “Oh God. Oh, I’m a nervous wreck. I just happened to hear the door slide and then I said, ‘hey,’ and he turned toward me he started walking toward me like ‘I didn’t know you was in here.’ I didn’t know if… I thought he was going to kill me.”
Police say Carl fled on foot and was later found by a K-9 hiding in a shed in a different yard.
The suspect was taken to Atrium Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries and is being charged with burglary, Pacifico added.
Carl was later transported to the Franklin Police Department, Pacifico said.
Police said the homeowner was justified in shooting the suspect.
