A burglary suspect, who was shot twice by a homeowner, crawled under a pickup truck, where he waited for police to arrive before coming out from under the vehicle, reports say.

The incident occurred Monday night in Houston, Texas.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the unidentified homeowner “was with his wife in their guest house when they heard a commotion outside.” The homeowner grabbed a gun and found 39-year-old Kenneth Wayne Shepherd, who had allegedly jumped the property fence and was “trying to break into the guest house.”

The homeowner shot twice, hitting Shepherd in one arm and one leg. Houston Police Department spokeswoman Jodi Silva said Shepherd then “crawled under the homeowner’s parked pickup,” where he stayed until police arrived.

Shepherd was arrested “without incident” when officers arrived. He was taken to the hospital and is “expected to survive.”
