Police arrested a man early Friday who got shot after allegedly trying to break into a vehicle outside a Kansas City, North, apartment complex.

Officers responded to the residence in 500 block of Northwest 55th Terrace about 2:30 a.m. The car owner said he approached a man trying to break into his car. The man pulled out a knife and followed the car owner into his apartment.

Once inside, the car owner yelled for his roommate to grab a gun. The would-be burglar fought with the roommates and got pistol whipped. The fight spilled into the hallway where one of the roommates shot the man. He ran out of the building.
