TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pinal County Sheriff's officials arrested one of three attempted burglary suspects following a shooting involving the homeowner, officials said.

A homeowner in the 2600 block of W. Canyon Street in Apache Junction called police around 8:20 p.m. Monday to report a number of men tried to kick in the back door to his home and shots were fired. Other neighbors reported shots fired and one caller advised of a man who had been shot and was lying in the yard, according to sheriff's officials.

Deputies on scene found a 19-year-old man, identified as Sal Olmos, with a non-life-threatening shotgun wound to his upper legs, authorities confirmed. They spoke with four residents in the home and determined Olmos and two other suspects attempted to enter and rob the home.

The homeowner told authorities when he heard people at the backdoor he looked at his security cameras and saw three unknown suspects wearing hoods and holding guns. Then they kicked the door so the homeowner used a shotgun to fire one round through the door after he saw laser sights pointed at his head. Officials said the three suspects fired rounds from three different guns into the residence before they ran from the home. Olmos was found in a neighbor's yard with back zip-ties, a hooded sweatshirt and a .45 caliber handgun, and the other two suspects kept running.

Olmos told officials one of the residents owed him a lot of money so he was there to "collect" it, and admitted he and two others were armed and brought black zip-ties, so they were "prepared for whatever," according to a news release.

"Sal Olmos admitted to shooting the handgun into the home and being high on methamphetamines for several days," PCSO Sheriff Paul Babeu stated.

Babeu said Olmos had two grams of crystal methamphetamines in his pocket at the time of his arrest. He was booked into the Pinal County Jail on charges of attempted first degree burglary, aggravated assault, shooting into an occupied structure, misconduct involving weapons and possession of a dangerous drug.

The investigation is ongoing and Babeu said Olmos might face more charges.
