SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police have one person in custody after a burglary attempt led to a stabbing and shooting late Saturday night.

A homeowner said he left his house to go to work and saw another man in the back seat of his car, according to police. The homeowner approached the burglar, and the two got into a fight.

The homeowner was able to get behind the burglar and hold him down but the burglar was able to grab a gun and tried shooting the homeowner, police said. Police also said the gunshot missed the homeowner.

The homeowner's brother, who was inside the house at the time, heard the gunshot and came outside to help, according to police. While he was assisting the homeowner, police say the burglar pulled out a knife and stabbed the brother in the leg. The homeowner was able to pin the burglar down until police arrived, and they arrested him.

The burglar could be facing several charges, including aggravated assault, according to police. The homeowner's brother was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.
