A homeowner shot a would-be robber who was attempting to break into his north Houston home on Wednesday night. According to Jodi Silva, a spokeswoman for the Houston Police Department, the homeowner was with his wife in their guest house when they heard a commotion outside. The couple discovered that a man had climbed over a fence into their yard and was trying to break into the guest house. 

The homeowner grabbed his gun and fired two shots, wounding the intruder in the arm and leg. The suspect then crawled beneath the homeowner's parked pick-up truck. When officers arrived, he was arrested and taken into custody without incident. 

The suspect, identified by police as 39-year-old Kenneth Wayne Shepherd, has been charged with attempted burglary. He was transported to an area hospital and is expected to survive. The homeowner and his wife were not injured.
