Tempe police are investigating a shooting Tuesday near Broadway Road and South River Drive.
Tempe police spokesman Sgt. Mike Horn said a resident reported that two burglars broke into his home around 12:30 p.m.
The resident fired a shot, and the two burglars took off running from the home just west of Loop 101.
Police later got a call of a gunshot victim from Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa.
Doctors operated on the man, who is described as being his 20s, and police are looking for his partner.
“It looks like he dumped his buddy off at the hospital,” Horn said.
Horn said investigators will work with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to determine whether the shooting was justified.
