a.m. in the area of Northwest 2nd Avenue and 56th Street when the

When the homeowner went to check out
the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and
trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.
"He comes out and spots a person who is not only
fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog," Miami
Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.
The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.

the hospital, and may be under the influence of drugs.

justified shooting," Moreno said. "This individual was acting
irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point
that the homeowner attempted to get this individual's attention, he
immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him."
Police said the suspect, who refused to give his
identity, will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with
