ST. PETERSBURG — A man was shot early Thursday after he entered a woman's home through a window, according to St. Petersburg police.
The man has been identified as Timothy Scott Tugman, police said. Tugman, 48, remains hospitalized and will face a charge of occupied residential burglary when he is booked into the Pinellas County jail.
It was around 6:13 a.m. that police said Mary Starling Shirley, 66, saw a man she did not know climb on the 900 block of 24th Ave. S through a side window.
Police say she warned the man that she was armed. That did not stop the man, police said, so she shot him with a large caliber revolver.
Tugman was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg with a gunshot wound and is expected to survive, police said. According to state records, he has a history of arrests in Citrus, Hernando and Pasco counties and in 2014 pled guilty to drug charges in Pinellas County.
