For the second time in a month, a Kansas City business owner has shot and wounded people breaking into a warehouse he owns.

The Kansas City Star reports the latest incident occurred Sunday morning when the 74-year-old man responded to an alarm at the vacant warehouse. Police say the owner opened fire on two men who were inside, stealing copper.

One suspect was shot in the shoulder and arm, the other in the back. They're described as an uncle and nephew from Kansas.

Police say the warehouse owner also confronted two burglars on the morning of Sept. 25. He shot one suspect in the leg and a second suspect in the abdomen.

Jackson County prosecutors were sorting out possible charges Monday against the suspects in the latest case.
