Homeowner shoots person trying to burglarize suburban Delray Beach home, deputies say

A suburban Delray Beach resident shot at three males who were trying to burglarize his home this afternoon.

Deputies and fire rescue crews were called shortly after 2 p.m. to the 5100 block of Palm Ridge Boulevard, west of Military Trail and south of Woolbright road.

Palm Beach Sheriff's spokesman Teri Barbera said the homeowner was threatened by the three men, who pulled up to his residence in a black vehicle for a short time and then left. A short time later, the three males appeared suddenly and threatened the resident in the back of his home.

He fired at the suspects, striking one of them in the arm. The males fled in an unknown direction and turned up at Delreay Medical Center a short time later.

All three have been taken into custody. The homeowner's name has not been released.
