    A burglary suspect is in stable condition after being shot in the neck by a homeowner.

    It happened in South Knox County on Chestnut Street, just before midnight Sunday.

    Two men tried to break into the home of 63 year-old Horace Garland. The homeowner shot 21 year-old Jeremy Johnson when he came through a window.

    Johnson's stepbrother, Timothy Sellers then came into the house and fired a shot at Garland, missing him.

    Sellers then dragged Johnson out of the house and drove him to UT Medical Center. Sellers was taken into custody a short time later.

    Both suspects confessed, and have been charged with aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated robbery.

    Detectives say Garland won't face any charges because he was acting in self-defense.

    Why wasnt the other asshole charged with attempted murder for shooting at the home owner?
