WESLEY CHAPEL — While the owners were sleeping Sunday morning, a man they didn't know broke into their home, Pasco deputies said.

About 2 a.m., the wife woke up when she heard Michael Zamora-Norris, 21, inside the house on Boyette Oaks Place, according to an arrest report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. She woke her husband and told him someone was inside.

The husband grabbed a shotgun, the report said.

When confronted, Norris retreated into a bathroom. The husband shoved the door open and fired once, but Norris escaped through a window.

Deputies found him nearby and arrested him.

Norris, of 1103 E. 127th Ave. in Tampa, is charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and violating probation, which he was on for another burglary of an occupied dwelling charge. He was being held in Land O' Lakes jail Monday, in lieu of $20,000 bail.
