A Miami homeowner shot two suspected burglars when he came home Friday afternoon and found them inside his home, according to Miami police.
At about 12:20 p.m., Miami police were called to a home in the 500 block of Northwest 52nd Street after neighbors reported gunshots.
The suspects were shot in the legs following a confrontation with the victim in which they tried to leave.
Preston Pierre, 18, and Samuel Levy, 26, were arrested by police and then taken by Miami Fire Rescue to Jackson Memorial’s Ryder Trauma Unit where they were being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
