(AP) - An Omaha man who allegedly broke into a home and tried to steal two dogs at gunpoint was shot with his own gun during a struggle over it.

Omaha Police said the 29-year-old man was shot by a resident of a home in northeast Omaha shortly before midnight Tuesday as the resident took the gun away from the suspect.

The man was found a short time later when he went to a hospital for treatment of the gunshot wound, and he was arrested after he was treated for the injury.

Court records show that the wounded man is already awaiting trial on two felony charges.
