    Man Shot in The Back

    Burglary suspect shot as he flees - Breaking News from the Press-Register - al.com

    A 19-year-old man was shot in the back Sunday evening after he was caught rifling through an older model Chevrolet Caprice sitting in a Mobile auto body shop lot, police said.

    The wounded man apparently didn't find much in the car, and as he fled he lost his tennis shoes, said the business owner who shot the man. The teen was taken to the hospital, but another man with him escaped, police said.

    It was the second incident over the weekend in which a man was shot while believed to be committing a crime.

    On Saturday, one of two men allegedly forcing their way into a Midtown home was shot and killed by either his own gun or his partner's gun as a resident struggled to keep them out of the house, police said.

    Unlike the home invader, the 19-year-old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police spokesman Officer Eric Gallichant said.

    Isaac Taylor said he was inside his business --

    Taylor Made Auto Shop on Halls Mill Road -- about 6:30 p.m. when he heard something outside.

    Taylor, 44, said he opened the door and surveyed a dark parking lot full of vehicles he had been hired to fix.

    He said he spotted a man sitting in the Caprice. There was another man moving around inside a black four-door Honda Civic, Taylor said Monday.

    Taylor said he fired his .38-caliber pistol as the two men fled. He said he then caught and tackled the 19-year-old in the driveway that the auto shop shares with Aramark Uniform Services.

    "He told me his stomach was burning," Taylor said. "The way he had been running, I didn't think he had been shot."

    Taylor said he called 911 when he realized that the man was wounded.

    Police declined to release the 19-year-old's name Monday. The man will be arrested and charged once he is released from the hospital, Gallichant said.

    Police will identify the man once investigators sign warrants against him, Gallichant said.

    Taylor said he had seen the man he shot using his driveway as a short cut between Halls Mill and Navco roads. He said he didn't get a good look at the second man.

    Usually no one is at the shop on Sundays, but Taylor said he was there trying to finish painting a Nissan Ultima.

    "I guess they thought no one was out here," he said.

    Taylor said he thought the men had rifled through several unlocked vehicles, but he didn't know if anything was taken.

    He is asking his customers whether anything is missing when they come to pick up their vehicles.

    Taylor said he carries a gun because of previous robberies and burglaries.

    "I'm working hard every day," Taylor said Monday evening as he pulled tape off the door of the newly painted red Ultima.

    In addition to the 19-year-old's tennis shoes, one of Taylor's employees found jumper cables lying in the parking lot Monday, he said.

    "I hate to say this, but I kind of feel sorry for him," Taylor said.
    "The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground."
