DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A man is in the hospital after getting shot during a home invasion in southwest Dallas this morning.  

Police say just before 3:30 a.m. there was gunfire at Mandalay Palms, an apartment complex near I-20 and Highway 67.

A man says he caught a would-be burglar breaking in so he shot him.

The burglar tried to run for it but collapsed a short distance away. He was rushed to the emergency room but we don't know his condition.
