MIAMI (AP) - A naked intruder shot after allegedly throttling a Miami family's dog and trying to bite its owner is refusing to cooperate with authorities.
The homeowner heard the dog barking around 5 a.m. Wednesday and went to investigate. Police say the homeowner saw the naked man trying to choke the animal and rushed to free it. That's when police say the naked man bit the homeowner.
The homeowner told police he feared for his life and shot the intruder while other family members called 911.
The intruder was hit once but continued to put up a fight as officers arrived. He eventually was arrested and taken to a hospital, where refused to provide his name.
Police say the intruder faces multiple charges, including animal cruelty.
