Man Came Home From Work To Find 17-Year-Old In His Unit

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- Police said a neighbor shot a teenage neighbor inside at an Arlington apartment complex Friday afternoon.

Robert Johnson came home from work about 3 p.m. and noticed that the sliding glass door of his Oak Hill apartment was open.

"He scared me. I ran outside and got my handgun," Johnson told Channel 4. "I didn't know who was in the house at the time, so I shot him."

The teen was taken to Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center with a bullet wound to his thigh. Police said he will face burglary charges when he gets out of the hospital.

Police don't expect to file charges against Johnson.
