A homeowner hearing someone trying to break into his house early Saturday morning yelled at the intruder he had a gun, according to sheriff’s deputies responding to the call of a burglary in progress in the 10300 block of Maple Avenue.
The would-be burglar, later identified as Jennifer London, 23, broke out the front window and stuck her head through.
San Bernardino County Sheriff ’s deputies said the resident feared for his family’s safety and fired at the suspect causing her to flee.
She was located a short time later with a bullet wound to her chest and was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.
Amazingly, the bullet passed through her body without hitting any vital organs or arteries, according to investigators. She was treated and turned over to waiting deputies and taken to West Valley Detention Center.
The homeowner has not been identified but authorities said he won’t be charged with anything and acted in self-defense.
