An alleged burglar is out of the hospital after being shot by a Phoenix homeowner.

Police were called to the home near Broadway Road and 63rd Avenue around 8 p.m. on Dec. 20 after neighbors heard gunshots.

According to police, three suspects were attempting to rob the home when the 19-year-old homeowner shot two of the suspects.
