A homeowner shot a burglary suspect in the groin after catching two men trying to steal scrap metal from his property, according to authorities.

Deputies said the incident happened Dec. 20 at a home in Kennamer Cove in Marshall County.

The homeowner told authorities that when he asked the two men to leave, one of them came toward him and threatened to kill him. That’s when the victim told deputies he shot the suspect once in the groin with his rifle. Both suspects managed to flee the scene.

Deputies were able to locate and arrest 25-year-old Paul Curtis Reed and transported him to the Marshall County Jail. The injured suspect, 23-year-old Aaron Michael Lawson, was located at Huntsville Hospital getting treatment for his wound. Lawson was arrested after having surgery.
