Police in Forth Wayne, Indiana have arrested an 18-year-old man after surveillance video appeared to catch him and another man trying to break into a home - an the shot himself in the leg.
The attempted break-in happened in the early morning hours of Jan. 18.
The homeowners spoke with the local ABC affiliate, about what they heard and discovered once the would-be burglars left.
"There was actually a shell on the ground outside of my house from when he shot himself in the leg, so they went ahead and did their crime scene investigation, took pictures of footprints and the shell, whatnot. And they checked the neighborhood to make sure they weren't still around," Trey Thomas said.
