Monterey Park Man Stops Home Invasion

One Intruder Wounded During Confrontation



September 16, 2000

An apparent home invasion robbery went real bad for two suspects Friday night.

According to Monterey Park police, a man walked into his residence in the 500 block of East Taylor Drive shortly before 11:00 p.m. to find himself face-to-face with two intruders. One of them was carrying a gun. When the suspects started to approach the homeowner, he reacted quickly.

"The victim was able to obtain his own handgun and fire at the suspects," Monterey Park Police Department spokeswoman D.J. Casey told Channel 2000. "One guy was wounded outright, and it's believed his partner was hit too, but he was able to run away."

Police arrived to find one suspect hunched over outside the home, wounded and bleeding. He was taken to an area hospital and is expected to recover.

"His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening," Casey said. Police recovered the firearm one of the intruders had in his possession. The homeowner was not hurt in the confrontation. He's not expected to be charged with anything, since investigators have already determined that his gun was fired in self-defense.

Police are on the look-out for the other alleged robber. He's described only as an Asian male. Anyone with information on the man's whereabouts is encouraged to contact Monterey Park Police at (626) 307-1233
