Updated:WOODINVILLE, Wash. —
A burglary suspect was in critical condition Monday after a Woodinville homeowner interrupted and shot him during a break-in, and another woman wanted in the robbery was still on the loose.
The homeowner found the intruders rifling through a bedroom closet, pulled out a gun and told them not to move, the King County Sheriff’s Office said. The homeowner called 911, and fired two shots at the male intruder when he rushed at him.
The wounded intruder fled in a car and called 911 just a few blocks away, police said. He was arrested and taken to Harborview Medical Center.
Chopper 7 video showed sheriff's office vehicles near a dark sedan. Someone with a vest marked "police" was looking inside the car.
Sheriff’s officials said the female intruder ran off.
The home where the shooting happened is in the 14200 block of 168th Avenue Northeast.
Police haven’t released the homeowner’s name, but neighbors told KIRO 7 he and his wife are missionaries who travel a lot.
“It’s very quiet. There’s no noise,” said neighbor John Soriano, describing the neighborhood.
