An Ohio man accused of burglary is recovering from gunshot wounds in a Toledo area hospital this week.

The suspected burglar actually called 911 himself to report he had been shot. Although, in his version of events he forgot to mention the whole attempted burglary thing.

The homeowner identified as Antione Garret, 34, heard someone trying to break into his home in the middle of the night.

Garret grabbed a handgun and went to investigate. He found a man, suspected to be Randy Estrada, 21, attempting to enter the home through a window.

Garret fired multiple shots at Estrada, who then fled the scene.

Estrada called 911 to report that he had been shot, however, Garret’s own 911 call came in before Estrada’s, leading authorities to make the connection.

Estrada has been formally charged with burglary.

This is the 58th defensive gun use we’ve documented from the state of Ohio and the 1026th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
