Man shot after chasing burglars from his parents' Norwalk home


The son of a Norwalk resident was shot in the arm Wednesday night when he gave chase to three men he caught breaking into his parents’ home, authorities said.

The victim, who was not identified, and other family members startled the burglars as they were prying open a window. The suspects fled to their car and attempted to run over one resident as they drove away, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

With two family members in pursuit, the suspects drove north on the 605 Freeway, exited at Telegraph Road and came to a halt at the end of the ramp at about 7:30 p.m. The victim got of his car and as he walked toward the suspects one of them emerged from his vehicle and fired a single round, hitting the victim in the left arm, deputies said.

The suspects fled and the injured man was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.
