Suspected burglar shot after breaking into apartment

A 90-year-old Marin County man recovering after being wounded during a shootout with an intruder is having trouble breathing and is heavily sedated.

Jay Leone shot the burglary suspect three times after the man broke into his Greenbrae home Wednesday morning.

Police say the suspect also had a gun and shot Leone in the cheek.

His sister tells ABC7 it has been "touch and go" the last few days. Leone is now on a ventilator and doctors may have to perform a tracheotomy.

Leone is a World War II veteran and a former law enforcement agent. Friends say he is tough enough to pull through.
