SAN DIEGO -- A homeowner in San Ysidro shot at a man he saw breaking into a toolshed where he stores weapons early Friday morning, San Diego Police Department said.

Around 4:30 a.m., on Glancy Drive near Camino De La Plaza, the resident said he he saw a man trying to steal things from a toolshed where he stores weapons. The homeowner was armed and shot at the prowler, according to SDPD.
