SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) _ Shawnee police say a suspected burglar is recovering from a gunshot wound in the stomach after he was shot last night.

Shawnee Police Lieutenant Conny Clay says a woman and an acquaintance came to the woman's home and found the intruder in the residence. Clay says the man then shot the intruder once in the stomach.

Clay says the intruder was taken to the O-U Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was stabilized. His name was not released.

The names of the woman and her acquaintance also were not released, but Clay says the man had a permit to carry the gun.

Clay says an investigation will determine what arrests will be made.
