TUCSON - As Sergeant Robert Carpenter recovers from a gunshot wound to the head, Tucson Police Investigators continue their efforts to find the man responsible for shooting him.
Sean Davis is the homeowner whose house was burglarized. He's outraged over the shooting.
"All this for what? Its senseless complete unnecessary act of shooting somebody in the head," he says.
Davis was out of town when his house was broken into. Nothing was taken, because police recovered his property outside the home. In both cases the security alarm went off and Tucson Police responded. It was during the second response when police say Sergeant Carpenter was shot as he stood with two other officers talking about the break-in.
Davis says, "It doesn't make much sense to me and the police officers don't seem to make sense of it either. What do you have left you have a net gain of a Sgt. who is having a traumatic brain injury right now."
Davis doesn't believe the suspect would've broken into the house had someone been home. "I can assure you, he wouldn't have left, if I was home." However, Davis wants Sgt. Carpenter to know, "I am horribly sorry for what happened to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you."
