ROSENBERG, Texas –- A burglary suspect was sent to the hospital by Life Flight on Sunday night after a homeowner shot him multiple times, police said.
Officers were called to the 400 block of Blume Road after neighbors reported hearing gunshots in the area, the Rosenberg Police Department said. Police arrived to find a wounded burglary suspect.
A witness across the street said prior to the shooting, he saw the suspect trying to break in to his neighbor’s home, so he called the homeowner. A few minutes later, the homeowner arrived with his dad, and they confronted the suspect.

On Monday, the suspect was released from the hospital after being treated for injuries to his shoulder and leg. Police identified him as Alejandro Arrona, 19.
