UPDATE (8 P.M.):

College Station--

A man is recovering after he was shot Tuesday afternoon when a homeowner found him trying to break into his garage.

According to College Station Police, the 30-year-old homeowner came outside and found 23-year-old Daniel Pinon of Navasota actively burglarizing his garage in the 3200 block of Wildrye.

The homeowner and Pinon got in a short physical fight, at which point the homeowner, who had grabbed his gun, shot Pinon in his left leg. Pinon then fled on foot.

The homeowner reported that Pinon had been in a silver-colored 2011 Dodge Avenger, which police found in the street in front of the house. A computer check of the vehicle showed that it had been reported stolen out of Grimes County earlier today.

Pinon was arrested and charged with Burglary of Habitation and Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle. He's in the Brazos County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
