He broke into an apartment, police say, but left with a gunshot wound, not valuables

A man broke into a Puyallup apartment late Sunday and got a bullet for his trouble.

The 33-year-old man who lived in the home welcomed the intruder with a pistol and quickly fired two shots when the he burst through the door.

It was about 10:30 p.m. when the resident heard someone pounding on his door at the Chestnut Hills apartments in the 200 block of 21st Avenue SW.

He looked out the window and saw a man holding what appeared to be a gun, so he armed himself.

The resident didn’t fire until the intruder forced his way into the apartment, police said.

The intruder fled in a vehicle before police arrived.

Officers notified local hospitals to be on the lookout for a man coming in with a gunshot wound, a routine procedure in that type of incident. 

Shortly afterward, a 52-year-old man sought treatment at Good Samaritan Hospital for a gunshot wound. He’s expected to survive his injury.

Police said they are unaware of a connection between the resident and the suspected intruder.

The suspect is expected to be booked into jail after he is released from the hospital.
