Gulfport Homeowner Shot During Break-In, Police Search For Gunman

GULFPORT (WLOX) -- Gulfport Police are looking for three men who tried to burglarize a home, and ended up shooting the homeowner.

It happened Wednesday morning at a home on Wilson Boulevard. Police say three black men in their teens or early twenties, broke into the home, shot the resident, then ran away.

The homeowner was taken to Memorial Hospital, and Wednesday night was listed in stable condition.

Police say a similar break-in happened three weeks ago just a block away on Connie Drive. In that case, two black males robbed the homeowner at gunpoint, then fled on foot.

If you have any information on either crime, call the Gulfport Police Department or Crimestoppers at 1-800-433-TIPS.
