ORLANDO, Fla. – A burglary suspect is facing charges after breaking into two residences, Orlando police said.

Police responded around 9:20 p.m. to a residence on Messina Avenue for an occupied residential burglary. While en route, police said a second call was received from an address on Marbello Boulevard about a shooting.

It was determined the same suspect from the burglary on Messina Avenue had just previously broken a window and kicked in the door on Marbello Boulevard, at which time a resident armed himself with a handgun, police said.

The resident became involved in a physical altercation with the suspect, and police said a female inside the house was unintentionally struck by the round. She was listed in stable condition.

The suspect fled the residence on Marbello Boulevard and broke a window at the house on Messina Avenue to gain entry, police said.

The suspect was arrested by officers at the Messina Avenue house. Police said he was also taken to a hospital with lacerations caused from broken glass when he entered both residences.

The suspect will be charged with numerous felony offenses, police said.

Police said they are not looking for any other suspects.
