A southern Oregon homeowner is not expected to face charges after shooting a burglary suspect attempting to break into his home.
Oregon State Police troopers responded to the Cave Junction home around 4 a.m. Wednesday and say the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Kristopher Nelson, was lying in the homeowner’s yard when police were called.
Police say the homeowner fired a warning shot before shooting Nelson in the leg.
Nelson was treated for his injuries at a nearby medical center. Police are investigating and say charges against Nelson are pending.
The homeowner is cooperating with the investigation.
