PLANO - A man was found with a gunshot wound inside a vehicle in Plano after authorities received a report from a homeowner saying he shot an intruder inside his nearby home early Tuesday morning.
The homeowner told authorities he heard someone loudly banding on the door of his two-story townhouse in the early morning hours in the 2500 block of East Park Boulevard. The homeowner said he then heard the person attempt to break into his upstair's balcony and then heard the window on his front door get smashed.
The suspect was allegedly able to get inside the residence and the homeowner said he shot him as he ran up the stairs.
The suspect fled the scene in a vehicle, which witnesses described to police. Authorities later found a vehicle matching the description in a residential neighborhood just east of the crime scene and discovered a wounded man inside. He was transported to a nearby hospital in unknown condition.
