Man fires gun, hits suspect trying to break into his van

by

TOWN OF BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Police in southern Wisconsin are looking for a man who was shot when a property owner thought he was breaking in to a van.

Authorities think the man they’re looking for is suffering from an injury to his left arm which isn’t thought to be life-threatening.

Jacob Davenport called police in the Town of Beloit about a half-hour after the shooting at his home early last Friday morning.

Davenport told investigators he fired once while the suspected thief was in his driveway. He says he fired two or three more shots at a getaway car which he thinks was driven by a woman.

An initial charge of recklessly endangering safety was filed against Davenport, but it was dismissed later.
