Neighbors Thankful After Home-Invasion Shooting

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Two armed suspects in Henderson are facing burglary, weapons and kidnapping charges after breaking into a home Sunday.

One of those suspects fled and chose the wrong house to hide in. An off-duty Metro police officer discovered the suspect in his home and shot him in the leg.

Neighbors say they witnessed only a few minor break-ins within the last decade. But they would have never expected a home invasion and officer involved shooting would happen near their homes.

"We weren't quite sure what was going on, but it was surprising to see the street blocked and the helicopters flying overhead," said neighbor Kathy Puckoris.

When police arrived, one suspect was caught and the other fled about a block down, mistaking picking the home of an off-duty Metro officer to hide in.
