GARLAND, Texas — Police say a homeowner and two burglars exchanged gunfire early Friday morning in an attempted home invasion burglary — leaving one burglar wounded.
The Garland Police Department reports the incident occurred just after 7 a.m. on Friday, March 27, 2015, when police received a 911 call about gunshots in the 5200 block of Hollow Bend Lane.

“When officers arrived, they were told several men had come inside the home to rob them,” stated Garland Police Department Public Information Officer Joe Harn. “During the attempted robbery, shots were exchanged between the robbers and the homeowner.”

No injuries were reported for the individuals who live in the home but police say one of the burglars had been shot.

The two burglars were located in the area and taken into custody. Arrested were 24-year-old Caris Bryant of Dallas, Texas, and 27-year-old Dequalon Barnes of Dallas, Texas. Barnes suffered the gunshot wound and was taken to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, where he was treated and released back into police custody.

Bryant and Barnes are both charged with aggravated robbery. No bond information was available.
