A 33-year-old black man was fortunate to escape serious injury when he interrupted a burglary early Monday morning. The man told police investigators he was walking to his car in the 8300 block of North Broadway in the North Riverfront neighborhood after 1:30 a.m. when he saw two black men pulling the speakers out of the trunk of his car.
The suspects spotted him as well, dropping the speakers and fleeing in a burgundy SUV with a shattered passenger side window. One of the suspects fired shots at the man, hitting him in the hand. He was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition.
Police continue to investigate.
