The thug was running from police, when he decided to hide in a home.
The suspect fleeing on foot also dropped a quantity of suspected narcotics during the chase, police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak said.He would have been better off to surrender.
The suspect then “crashed though” a window of a residence near the area, apparently to try and hide, and he was shot by an occupant of the home, police said.
The thug is in a local hospital in serious condition, though his wounds are not considered life-threatening.
With the aid of a law-abiding citizen, police took a drug dealer off the street. (He threw away some heroin while being chased.)
