An intruder is in the hospital after a mother walked-in on him in her house, according to Fort Worth police.

The woman picked her son up from school and arrived at her home on Peggy Drive around noon  Friday.  She said she walked inside her home and found a man in her house. 

She confronted the unwelcome guest and shot him once in the leg, police said.  The man ran out of the house and the woman continued to chase him down the road.

The man was quickly found by officers hiding in a nearby creek.  He is being treated at a local hospital and will be taken to jail once medical officials release him.
