Meridian police say a burglar was shot by a homeowner Friday morning.
Officials say the resident arrived home between 10:30 and 11 a.m. to find someone in his house in the 2400 block of 37th Avenue.
Police spokesman Mike Vick said the homeowner fired once, injuring the suspect in the hand.
"There was an additional person of interest outside the home that is being questioned now," said Vick. "And charges are pending on both of those individuals."
Vick said he can't release the suspects' names until they are formally charged with burglary.
