Tangipahoa Parish Deputies were called to a home in the 23000 block of Highway 22 east in Ponchatoula, LA after the homeowner reported he had the aggravated burglary suspect at gunpoint.

According to the homeowner, the aggravated burglar, 20-year-old Richard Falcon Stewart Jr., was wearing the homeowners clothing and had several of the homeowner's firearms in tote.

According to deputies, the homeowner had Stewart at gunpoint when he told the homeowner that he was not going back to jail. That is when Stewart drew a pistol from his jacket and shot at the homeowner. The homeowner returned fire and shot Stewart in the buttocks.

Stewart then ran into the wooded area.

Deputy Matt Dean and K9 Nitro arrived on scene shortly thereafter. The deputies and K-9 Nitro found Stewart a short while later in a wooded area. They were able to subdue Stewart who was still armed.

Stewart had a single gunshot wound to the buttocks area. He was transported to NOMC where he was treated and released.

In addition to his current charges, it was learned that Stewart was on Parole for two counts of simple burglary until June 4, 2014. Stewart was booked on attempted second degree murder, aggravated burglary, and convicted felon in possession of a firearm charges.
