A teen's late-night burglary attempt in Frisco turned violent when he was shot by the homeowner, resulting in his arrest by the local cops. 18-year-old Clinton Montgomery was nabbed after trying to break into a home on Belfort Drive—a move that backfired spectacularly over the weekend, as reported by Frisco Police Department

It was a Sunday evening fraught with suspense. At around 8:06 p.m. on Sunday, police were summoned to the 10400 block of Belfort Drive following a call about suspicious activity. An audacious Montgomery reportedly pulled down a ladder, smashing a window in an intrusion gone awry. But the homeowner wasn't going down without a fight—they fired shots, which officers heard as they descended onto the scene.

In the ensuing chaos, Montgomery was discovered wounded inside the residence. He didn't just get a dose of vigilante justice; he also scored himself a battalion of charges for his alleged crimes. Currently, under the watchful eye of law enforcement at a local hospital, he's been slapped with Burglary of a Habitation, a second-degree felony that could land him behind bars for a stretch ranging from two to a daunting twenty years, and a potential fine that could hit $10,000.

The circumstances that brought the young suspect to this dire pass—an intersection of desperation and the stark assertion of a homeowner's defense—are still under wraps. The Frisco Police Department is keeping a tight lid on additional details for now. However, they are calling on anyone with a sliver of information related to this fateful night's affairs to come forward.
