STOCKTON, Calif. - Twenty-four-year-old Carlos Soto didn't hesitate a second when it was clear his Morada home was being broken into at 4 o'clock Tuesday morning.
"I had no other reaction than to go over there, hit the first guy and he fell. The other guy, the bigger guy, grabbed me from behind and tried to take me down. I wrestled in college, and when he grabbed me I threw him against the wall," Soto said.
What Soto didn't anticipate was getting shot and that's what happened as the robbers were trying to leave the home in the community just northeast of Stockton.
"I went to chase him and got to the door and felt my leg go numb. There was blood everywhere, got shot in the leg," Soto said.
