KELSO, Wash., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A Washington state man used a bow and arrow to shoot a man who allegedly was trying to burglarize a vacant home, police said.
Scott Schwingdorf followed the burglar suspect and shot him during the course of the burglary in Kelso, Wash., on Sunday, KPTV, Portland, reported.
Gaylen Crane, 32, who has been identified as the burglary suspect showed up at a later that night with an arrow wound, police said.
The house's owners, Jim Chambers and Debbie Scott, said they had been forced to move out when a fire damaged their home recently.
"It's people like (Schwingdorf) that make the streets safe. Especially when you're a victim already. It makes you feel a little safer when you got someone looking out for you," Chambers said.
