Reportedly, an unnamed man and his girlfriend were at home relaxing when they suddenly got a rude awakening, literally. In a small city in Las Vegas, Nevada, two burglars broke into the mans home, tied him and the woman up with duck tape, and attempted to rob them.
However, the man was able to break free from his restraints, grabbed his gun, and fired shots which killed one, while the other one tried to flee.
While the unknown man was killed at the scene, the other man, identified as 21-year-old Arnold Morales, initially escaped, but Morales was later arrested by police when he drove to the hospital to get treated for a gunshot wound to his buttocks.
In addition, the female resident was shot in the arm, but is recovering from her injuries at University Medical Center, while Morales was booked at the Clark County Detention Center as soon as he was discharged from the hospital.
Neighbors said they called police after hearing gunshots and screams.
A next-door neighbor named Matt Ciaglia expressed, “I definitely heard him yelling something so I called 911 again, they told me the wrong route. Next thing I know there were helicopters and police car.”
Moreover, Morales now faces charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, assault, armed robbery, burglary, and conspiracy. The suspect, who was killed, has not yet been identified, but police believe a third suspect may be on the run.
