Homeowner shoots repeat burglar

A Memphis homeowner shot a burglar who struck twice in one hour.

A man broke in through the back door of a home in the 2000 block of Rile Street late Wednesday night and stole a dvd player.

The suspect left the home, but returned about one hour later, at which time the homeowner spotted the burglar and shot him in the stomach.

The suspect was transported to The Med in critical condition.

The suspect lives in the same neighborhood as the person from whom he was stealing.

No charges have been filed, but police will question both the suspect and the homeowner.
