The burglar knocked on the front door to see if anyone was home. When nobody answered, he broke in through the rear patio door.
The homeowner wasn't able to answer the door right away, but when he looked to see who was there, he found a gun lying on his sofa.
Fortunately for the burglar, he remains in critical condition but is expected to survive his injures, police officials said Tuesday.
Let's hope the burglar doesn't try to work the system like this dickhead tried to do.
