Anne Arundel County police arrested a suspect involved in an Annapolis home invasion Thursday after he was shot with his own gun, which was taken in a struggle with the victim, who was also shot.

Police responded to the 1000 block of Skidmore Drive on a shooting call and found the 52-year-old male victim who was shot in the leg taking refuge at a neighbor’s house.

The victim said he and his girlfriend were home when two men broke in. One man brandished a gun and pointed it at the victim.

The victim told police he grabbed the pistol and began to struggle with the suspect when the gun went off and hit the victim in the leg. The victim was able to get the gun away from the suspect and shoot him before the victim escaped from the house.

When police arrived, they secured the home and found the wounded suspect and the victim’s girlfriend, police said.

The male victim and the wounded suspect are being treated at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Both are in stable condition.

The wounded suspect, Delonta Alonzo Snowden, 37, of Candlelight Lane in Glen Burnie, is being guarded pending charges, police said.

The second suspect fled the home after the wounded victim left, and police are on the hunt for him.

He was seen leaving in a silver 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan with Maryland license plate 6AX6329, which is registered to Mr. Snowden, police said.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-5 with a medium build, wearing blue jeans and a gray hoodie shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective M. Zukowski of the Eastern District at 410-222-6145, Ext. 1670, or dial 911.
