Man charged with burglary shot in leg


TEMPLE TERRACE, FLORIDA - A burglar got a bullet in the leg when he attempted to rob a Renald Boulevard home early Saturday, according to Temple Terrace police.

Police responded to a 911 call early Saturday from a caller who said her husband shot an intruder once in the left leg.

The occupants woke just after 5 a.m. to a noise in the living room, according to police. The homeowner armed himself with a .22 caliber revolver and confronted the burglar. As the suspect walked toward the homeowner, the homeowner fired one warning shot. When the shot failed to deter the intruder, the homeowner shot again, wounding him in the leg.

The suspect, Brian Anthony Harmon, 22, of 7511 N. Sanibel Circle, was taken to Tampa General Hospital where he was in stable condition Saturday.

Harmon was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. The homeowner was not charged. Note:  This homeowner is fortunate. A violent criminal can do a lot of bodily damage to someone with only a .22 caliber hole in his leg. Police do not carry .22's, nor do they aim for the leg. They aim for the center of body mass (chest) and use a larger caliber for a reason: to end the chance for the perpetrator to do bodily harm. We are glad this situation turned out favorably for the homeowner.
