Homeowner shoots intruder in bedroom

A central Toledo man shot an intruder as the suspect walked toward him inside his home with a radiator, police said.

Gary M. Wilson, 48, of 1329 Woodland Ave., was in critical condition yesterday in Toledo Hospital, authorities said.

Gary Holston, 42, was in his office on the second floor of his house, 1405 Woodland, about 11 p.m. Tuesday when he heard someone run up the stairs and into his bedroom. Mr. Holston said he grabbed his 12-gauge shotgun, walked into the hallway, and saw the burglar with his radiator. The suspect lifted it to head level and appeared as if he might attack. Mr. Holston then shot the man in the leg.
