COLLEGE STATION - A Navasota man is in jail after being shot by a College Station homeowner Tuesday.

College Station police say Daniel Pinon, 23, was caught inside the garage of a home in the 3200 block of Wildrye Drive Tuesday. The homeowner told police that he saw Pinon in his garage and went to get his gun. The homeowner then confronted Pinon as he was walking toward a silver 2011 Dodge Avenger with a box full of things from the garage. According to investigators, the two got into a fight. Officers say that the homeowner shot Pinon in the leg.

CSPD officers say Pinon then ran away from the house. Officers were called to Wildrye because of shots fired in the area. Another 911 caller reported a man with a gun headed towards Rock Prairie Road. Pinon was arrested a couple of blocks from the shooting at Rock Prairie and Normand. He was taken to the College Station Medical Center and treated for a gunshot wound.

Police say Pinon stole the Dodge Avenger in Navasota then drove to the home on Wildrye. The owner of the car told News 3 she reported it stolen Monday night.

Pinon is charged with Burglary of a Habitation and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle. He is still in the Brazos County Jail under $20,000 bond.

The investigation continues and additional charges are possible.
