    Miodrag Bugarcic, 60, has been arrested and charged with felonious assault after shooting and wounding an intruder at an abandoned business near East 65th and Sidaway. The shooting happened around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday.More >>

A man is sitting in jail under investigation for shooting an intruder at his vacant business on East 65th Street in Cleveland.

Multiple sources identify the property owner as Miodrag Bugarcic.

This marks the third time, Bugarcic has allegedly opened fire on an intruder.

In this latest case on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014 the suspected burglar got shot in the stomach and his butt. 

Police say he somehow stumbled off, and they found him a few blocks away.

Another intruder didn't make it out alive.

In November 2012, police say Bugarcic shot and killed a burglar at a property he owns on Portage in Cleveland.

Three weeks after that, he shot and wounded another burglar.

And last November, police say Bugarcic held two men at gunpoint as they stripped an air conditioner in the same location.

19 Action News also learned Bugarcic had just been to police headquarters trying to get back a gun from an earlier shooting.

This latest shooting he used a rifle to fire shells at the intruder.

Last year our Ed Gallek went to see Bugarcic at his home, and he scrambled behind the door without talking.

Investigators believe offenders may be breaking into Bugarcic's property looking for scrap metal.

He was not charged for the earlier shootings, including the death. 

This time, he may or may not face charges.
