Man Shot While Allegedly Breaking Into Tuolumne Home
Tuolumne, CA — The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred over the weekend on Carter Street in Tuolumne.
The Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a homeowner about a man trying to break into her home. The homeowner yelled for the man to go away while she secured her doors and hid her three children upstairs. The man continued to attempt entry into the home, so the woman took out a handgun and shot the man, causing “non-life threatening injuries.”
The man then ran away and was located by deputies afterwards at a neighboring home where he was attending a party. The man was transported to Adventist Health Sonora with a blood alcohol level of .250.
There has not been an arrest made at this time, according to the Sheriff’s Office, as the investigation is still ongoing. In addition, no names have been made available to this point. The incident happened on Saturday evening.
