Crawford County

A Crawford County, Arkansas, home invasion suspect was hospitalized in stable condition after a homeowner shot him in the head with a shotgun.

5News reports that the invasion suspect, 47-year-old Todd Byrns, set off an alarm in the home around 3:00 a.m. The homeowner grabbed his shotgun, went to investigate the cause of the alarm, and came face-to-face with Byrns.

The two men wrestled before the homeowner was able to get off a shot.

The Times Record reports that Crawford County Sheriff Ron Brown said Byrns fled the home after being shot. He allegedly got into a getaway car “where a female accomplice called 911 on his behalf.” Byrns was transported to a hospital then to the Crawford County Detention Center.
