By Sam Catanzaro

Santa Monica police officers shot a suspected burglar in the abdomen Thursday evening amid a manhunt, the second large scale search for an armed criminal in Santa Monica this week.

According to Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) Lieutenant Candice Cobarrubias, a man arrived home Thursday evening and found an intruder in his residence near Pine Street and 11th Street. The intruder, described as a male between 25 and 30 years old, proceeded to point a firearm at the resident and the resident fled to a neighbor’s house. The resident called the police at approximately 6:20 p.m.

SMPD officers responded to find the suspect in the front yard of the victim’s home clutching a gun. The suspect fled and a perimeter was established as police initiated a search aided by a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) helicopter.

Officers soon found the suspect hiding in a yard near the 1000 block of Cedar Stree. During a standoff, multiple shots were fired and the suspect sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The suspect remained non-compliant forcing K9 deployment and he was taken into custody at a local hospital.

As of Friday morning, the suspect’s identity has not been made public. His condition is listed as stable.

This is the second manhunt to occur in Santa Monica this week. On Tuesday, an armed gunman made off with between $3,000-$5,000 after robbing a Santa Monica Wells Fargo and eluding a massive search operation.
