FORESTHILL (CBS13) — A Foresthill resident shot a person who was aggressively trying to break into his trailer last week, authorities say.

Back on the morning of Oct. 25, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office says a Foresthill resident woke up to someone banging on his trailer door. The suspect then started throwing large rocks at the trailer – and even through the windows – when the resident told him to leave.

It was at this point that the resident got his gun and shot the suspect in the leg.

Deputies soon responded to the scene and the suspect – 42-year-old Joshua Lemas, also a Foresthill resident – was taken into custody.
