A 28-year-old Jonesboro resident was shot in the arm by an intruder in his home early Saturday, authorities said.
Michael Gossett, who lives on Peter Trail, was asleep in the home around 12:30 a.m. when a “strange noise” woke him up, a city Police Department release says.
Gossett got out of bed and found a stranger in the home, police said, noting the intruder shot the 28-year-old before running away.
The victim was hit in the arm and was later taken to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn. Gossett was discharged from the medical center that same day, a hospital spokeswoman said.
No suspects were named in the release, and no arrests had been made Monday morning, police said.
CORRECTION: The burglary happened Saturday. Because of incorrect information supplied by police, an earlier version of this story listed the wrong date of the burglary.
