The suspect began kicking her door and then knocking on windows, which prompted the woman to go to her bedroom. When she saw the man followed and was at her bedroom window and trying to get in, the woman fired at him and he fled.

Police Sgt. Henry Bryant said the man was caught when he sought hospital treatment of a gunshot wound to his left arm.

After getting medical care, the man was arrested for burglary.
