The owner of the vehicle, a 62-year-old man, came outside to confront the burglar who allegedly “armed himself with a large stick” and beat the victim several times with it, the report stated. 

The victim retreated back into his home, but Lowe followed. The victim drew a gun and fired at the suspect, shooting him twice. Police said Lowe was transported to an area hospital and listed in stable condition.
