Youngstown homeowner shoots suspected burglar
Police reports say a woman in the 100 block of East Judson Avenue shot a man who broke into her house early Friday.
Police were called to the home about 2:15 a.m. for a burglary in progress, where dispatchers told them they heard a woman scream, a man yell “don’t do it, don’t do it,” and the line then went dead.
First officers at the home said a back window was broken out, and a trash can was propped underneath the window for someone to get in. The 39-year-old woman who lives in the home let police in and said she shot a man who was upstairs. She handed one of the officers a .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun and told the officer it was the gun she had used.
Officers found Calvin Moore Jr., 41, in a hallway with gunshot wounds to his leg and stomach next to a door he had tried to kick in, reports said. There were two .40-caliber shell casings next to him, and in another room, officers found a .40-caliber Glock semiautomatic handgun in a clothes basket.
There also was a car in the back of the home that had a rear window shot out, reports said.
Moore was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he was listed in stable condition. Police took both guns for evidence to be tested.
