An off-duty Modesto police officer shot an armed burglary suspect Sunday afternoon, officials reported. The suspect, described as a white man in his 20s, was taken to a Modesto hospital, where he remained Sunday evening. His wounds are not believed to be life-threatening. Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Findlen said the preliminary investigation suggests the officer called 911 about 4:50 p.m. after hearing an alarm sounding from a neighbor's home. The officer investigated and confronted the burglary suspect. Findlen would not say what kind of weapon the suspect had but said officers recovered a firearm at the scene. He said the incident took place in a residential neighborhood near Citrus Drive and East Orangeburg Avenue, which is just west of Coffee Road. The Police Department and the Stanislaus County district attorney's office are investigating. The officer has been placed on paid administrative leave. Both are standard procedures for officer-involved shootings. Police did not release the name of the officer or the street where the shooting took place. Police did not release the suspect's name because it had not been verified.
