Law enforcement officials in Seattle arrested a burglar on Wednesday after he accidentally shot himself in the head while trying to flee the scene of a home that he allegedly broke into.

The incident happened early Wednesday morning when a resident heard noises coming from his garage, where he encountered the burglar.

“As the victim approached his garage, he saw the masked suspect, who turned and ran. The victim grabbed a broom and followed the suspect, who fled to a van in a nearby parking lot,” the Seattle Police Department said in a statement. “As the suspect was getting into the van, he pointed a gun at the victim and told him to get back. When he saw the gun, the victim turned around, and heard a gunshot moments later. The suspect in the van then sped away.”

After law enforcement arrived at the victim’s home, they received notification that a man had arrived at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his head.
