Washington Robber Leaves Apartment With Bullet Wounds Instead Of Valuables

It was Sunday night, around 10:30 p.m., when a resident in a Puyallup, Wash., apartment heard pounding on his front door. When he looked out the window and saw a man who appeared to be holding a gun, the resident wisely armed himself.

The News Tribune reported that the intruder burst through the door, and the 33-year-old man who lived in the residence greeted him with two well-placed gunshots. The intruder immediately turned and ran, fleeing the scene before police could arrive. However, officers notified hospitals near the apartments to be on the lookout, and a short time later a man checked himself into the Good Samaritan Hospital with a gunshot wound.

The 52-year-old suspect is expected to survive, and will be arrested once released from the hospital. Police have been unable to make a connection between the resident and the intruder.
