CHICAGO (Reuters) - A burglar who was wounded while breaking into a Chicago suburb home drove himself to the hospital in his intended victim's BMW that he had probably stolen the night before, police say.

The 31-year-old burglar, who let himself into the home on Monday night with keys he had apparently stolen on Sunday night, suffered two gunshot wounds and escaped by diving through a plate glass window.

Police, who arrested him at the hospital, said his wounds were not life-threatening.

The homeowner who shot the burglar may also be in trouble. The 54-year-old father of two lives in Wilmette, Illinois, a posh Chicago suburb that bans handgun ownership. For the gun, he could face a fine of up to $750
