OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) -- A marijuana grow owner shot one of two suspects of an attempted burglary at his business around 1 a.m. Monday after he claims the two returned to his shop again Monday after breaking in Friday night.

The owner, who wanted to remain anonymous in fear of retaliation, told News 4 it all started Friday night when two suspects broke into his business after stealing a key out of his lockbox out back, which he said he leaves there for his construction crew. The owner said the two stole $1,500 worth of tools, along with the key, and took off.

The owner said early Monday morning two people threw a large rock through his glass front door. He said he fired shots at them, hitting one of the suspects.

Police told News 4 sometime later someone showed up to a Del City hospital with a gunshot wound to the back and a bullet lodged in their arm. Police said they believe this person is one of the suspects. However, no one was immediately in custody.
