Homeowner Shoots Suspected Burglar; Another Suspect On The Loose

A suspected burglar has been released from the hospital after a homeowner shot him in Harrison County late Sunday night.

The sheriff says a man who lives on Old Lair Road came home to find two burglars on his property.

The owner shot one of the men, Thomas Terysian, 25, while the other suspect got away.

Terysian, who's from Paris, went to the hospital with gunshot wounds to a hand and forearm.

He's expected to be all right.

Police don't have a name for the second suspect. Police say two other homes on Old Lair Road were broken into Sunday night and burglars tried to break into two more homes.

The sheriff says the homeowner won't be charged.
