JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A suspect in a morning burglary is being hospitalized after being shot by a Jackson Police Officer.

Police were called to a home on Rosehaven Drive in Hibernia Hills by an alert neighbor who saw someone crawling into the home through a window.

When police arrived the subject came out of the home and, reportedly, made a threatening gesture to an officer.

She shot him in the leg.

The suspect was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

The officer will be placed on administrative leave, with pay, pending the results of an investigation.

That is standard operating procedure.
