A Yuma, Arizona man’s escape from the police was promptly impeded when confronted by an armed homeowner.
38-year-old Jesus Coronado was fleeing from the police when he chose the wrong house to break into. Upon entering the home, Coronado was met with the armed homeowner.
According to a KYMA news report, Coronado sustained a gunshot wound in the hand before he made off with the homeowner’s gun.
The homeowner was armed with a weapon and a short scuffle ensued. Coronado was shot in the hand but was non-life threatening.
Coronado took the homeowner's firearm and left the residence with the weapon. The officer heard the gunshot and yelling inside the home leading him to enter to search for Coronado.
As Coronado crossed the street he was apprehended and arrested.
No other injuries were involved.
Yuma County Sheriff's Office's Criminal Investigation unit is leading the investigation and is still underway.
Coronado has been released from Yuma Regional Medical Center and was booked at the Yuma County Detention Center where he faces charges of robbery, aggravated assault and an outstanding felony warrant for unlawful flight from law enforcement.
Coronado took a gamble when he decided to break into the home and he came out on the losing side.
The homeowner was able to confront this criminal and lead police to an arrest, thanks to his Constitutional Right to bear arms.

For most Americans, the simple task of walking the family dog would probably rank amongst the most uneventful chores of the week.
For one Michigan woman however, a relaxing evening stroll with her dog on December 2nd soon turned into a traumatic situation she would never forget.
While on her walk through the Maple Grove apartments in Sterling Heights Michigan, she noticed the driver of a van behaving very suspiciously.
Thankfully for this woman, her legally concealed firearm was inside her jacket when the would-be attacker approached.
As reported by FOX 32:
“Police say she noticed a man get out of the van on the other side of the street and started walking parallel to her.
Feeling uneasy, the woman, who is in her 40s, and a CPL holder, says she immediately put her hand on her gun that was hidden under her jacket.
Keeping her eye on the man, and continuing to hold her gun, she got to the end of the street and the suspect disappeared.
But then not even a minute later, that's when he came toward her.
"He grabbed the back of her jacket and tried to grab her and pull her towards him," Dwojakowski said.
The woman says she saw the man holding something shiny, possibly a knife.
"She put the gun into the suspect's stomach and said, 'I don't want to kill you,'" Dwojakowski said.
Police say the man appeared shocked and quickly ran off.”
Had it not been for her keen alertness and concealed firearm, who knows what horrors this woman might have faced on the night of the 2nd.
It is the unfortunate truth that in this day and age a violent attacker could be lurking around any corner.
Now more than ever, we need to strengthen our right to keep and bear arms. To do otherwise would leave countless law abiding citizens defenseless.

The Second Amendment is more than just a document to millions of Americans.
It is a way of life for those who value defending their lives.
A homeowner in Keithville, Louisiana has a now renewed appreciation for that right.
On an unassuming Friday morning, an armed homeowner spotted four men creeping outside his home.
Draped in hoodies designed to hide their identity, and tools to break in, she knew something was up.
Instead of waiting to see what these criminals wanted to do, she approached them, gun in hand.
At the sight of a gun, the four cowards ran for their nearby SUV speeding off.
During their panicked run, the homeowner’s dog pursued, biting a sock off of one of the would-be burglars.
It didn’t take long for police to catch up to the suspects, and the four, ranging from 20 to 24 years old were arrested for simple burglary, possession of burglary tools, and drug possession.
As reported by The Shreveport Times:
"Four men who planned to commit a burglary on Thursday were surprised by a gun-toting homeowner, according to Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office.
Just before 10 a.m., deputies were called to the 11000 of Peggy Lane in Keithville regarding a burglary in progress. The homeowner said several men were at her front door dressed in hoods and carrying backpacks. When she met them at the door with a handgun, the suspects fled in an SUV that was parked in the bushes.
At the same time, a passer-by reported to the sheriff’s office they witnessed the hooded suspects on the porch of the residence and another hiding in the bushes.
Caddo Sheriff’s Lt. Jackie Lewis spotted the suspects’ vehicle and stopped it in the 3200 block of Colquitt Road. The vehicle contained several backpacks, masks, a large knife and marijuana."
If anti-gun extremists like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had their way, this woman would be left defenseless against these four men.
Thankfully she had the sense to be armed and ready, and has a dog willing to help defend the home with her.
The homeowner was thankful work the great work of their dog, and stated that she got a big bone as a treat later that evening.
