Charlotte Observer | 03/08/2008 | Police: burglar shot breaking into house
A Charlotte man who police say was trying to break into a Shamrock Drive apartment was shot and critically injured by a person who lived there.
Rontrey Eric Digsby was at Carolinas Medical Center Saturday in critical/stable condition Saturday, according to police. He is charged with first-degree burglary for trying to break into the apartment on Shamrock Drive, near the Charlotte Museum of History.
Police have released the name of the man who pulled the trigger, but the Observer didn't publish his name because he has not been charged with a crime.
According to jail records, Digsby's last known address was on Treetop Court in east Charlotte. He has an extensive criminal record dating back to 2003, when he was 17, according to a search of court records.
At least one paper gets it and didn't publish the name of the victim! +1.
