A burglary suspect is hospitalized in ICU after a McLoud homeowner shoots him in the stomach.

Police say the man caught the suspect burglarizing his home just after 4 a.m. Thursday. The resident shot the suspect in the stomach with a .25 caliber handgun. Despite his injury, the suspect managed to run from the house. The homeowner then called 911 for help.

The suspect later arrived at Midwest City Regional Hospital, claiming he'd been shot in the Scott Street area of Del City. As Midwest City police investigated, they discovered the man was actually a suspect in the McLoud burglary.

The suspect underwent surgery and is now in the intensive care unit. His condition is unknown.

The McLoud Police Department is investigating, but no charges are expected to be filed against the homeowner.
