Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies continue their search for a suspect, who left his buddy seriously injured during a burglary. Officials say early Sunday, a man saw two people trying to steal his dirt bike near 17903 North 145 East Avenue.

The homeowner confronted them, got into a struggle, and the homeowner was knocked to the ground. As they tried to get away in a truck, they reportedly drove over him, so he fired several shots hitting one of them in the chest.

Both the suspect and homeowner were taken to the hospital; we don't have their conditions. The second suspect ran off, after abandoning the truck nearby.
