ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police say a man shot and wounded by a homeowner in the homeowner's home is expected to survive.
According to police, a man on Thursday entered the home through a back door, waking the sleeping homeowner who first hid in a bathroom.
The homeowner then confronted the man and fired twice. A police spokesman says it's not clear how many times the intruder was hit.
The wounded man made it to the backyard before collapsing.
Police also are looking for a woman seen waiting in a truck outside the home.
No names have been released.
