VIDEO: Naked Burglary Suspect Shot by Officer After Gun Grab

San Diego police officers shot a naked suspected burglar Monday in Mira Mesa.

The burglary was reported around noon. According to resident Ken Agbayani, who only spoke to CBS News 8, the suspect -- who was naked -- attempted to break into his neighbor's home through a side window.

"The neighbor came running through my house, and I was upstairs, and she was yelling, screaming there was a naked man trying to break into her house," Agbayani said.

Agbayani told CBS News 8 he confronted the man and told him police were on the way. Just then, an officer showed up.

"(The officer) confronted the male at gunpoint and gave him commands to surrender. At that point the male attacked the officer," SDPD Captain Albert Guaderrama said.

As the two wrestled, police say the man tried to grab the officer's gun.

"The officer was able to grab the weapon back and fire one round at the suspect. The man continued to fight with the officer and pushed him into the fence," Guaderrama said.

The injured suspect was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla to be treated for a single gunshot wound to the upper chest. He is listed in fair condition. His name is not being released.
