Cleveland man who killed burglar in November shoots another one


CLEVELAND — Authorities say a Northeast Ohio man who fatally shot a burglar in his home in November shot another man who broke into his home this week.

Police say the latest intruder was shot Monday morning in Miodrag Burgarcic's house in Cleveland. He was taken to the hospital with an arm wound. Burgarcic told officers he was holding the burglar at gunpoint and fired when the suspect tried to hit him with a lamp.

The Plain Dealer reports that Burgarcic fatally shot a 43-year-old knife-wielding burglar in the chest after finding the man in his home Nov. 21. No charges were filed.

The prosecutor's office will review the circumstances of the latest shooting.
