    Memphis, TN -- Police say a South Memphis home is broken into twice in one night. The second time around, the homeowner shoots the accused burglar in the stomach after he invades the house.

    The first break-in happened at 11:00 p.m., Wednesday, May 21, 2008, while the homeowner was not home.

    The second break-in happened an hour later. This time the homeowner was home.

    According to the homeowner, the accused burglar charged at him while in the house. That's when he says he fired several shots and a bullet hit the burglar once in the stomach sending him to the Med in critical condition.

    Police say at this point they don't know if the same guy broke into the house both times.

    According to police the homeowner does not have a gun permit. Police say he will not be charged for this shooting.

    The accused burglar's name has not yet been released. Police say he is 33 years-old.

    The homeowner is 27 years-old.

    I assume they mean carry permit. To my knowledge there is no ownership permits required in memphis.
