A woman is in the hospital after reportedly being shot by a homeowner in east Fort Worth early Thursday.

Police got a call about 2:30 a.m. saying a female suspect was banging on and trying to open the window of a home in the 2500 block of North Edgewood Terrace. The homeowner shot the woman in the back yard, said officer Brad Perez, police spokesman.

The woman was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in serious condition but is expected to survive, said Matt Zavadsky, MedStar spokesman. She is believed to be known by a resident in the neighborhood.

The homeowner, who was questioned by police but not arrested, told police his home had been burglarized before and he thought it was happening again. A neighbor said the homeowner moved into the house about six months ago.

The woman faces charges of criminal mischief, Perez said. She has not been identified.
