HOUSTON (AP) Police say a 24-year-old man has been hospitalized in serious condition after being confronted by people whose vehicles he's suspected of burglarizing.
Authorities say Cristian Lince and another man burglarized several vehicles in a Houston neighborhood early Wednesday morning. They say a resident was awakened and later followed the two. The resident's neighbors were notified and approached the suspects when they stopped at a gas station.
Police say one of the neighbors felt threatened and shot Lince, who then fled in a stolen vehicle with the second suspect. But Lince was thrown from the vehicle when it struck the pillar of a freeway overpass.
He's charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The second suspect is being sought.
It wasn't immediately clear whether an attorney is representing Lince.
