Burglars shoot man on return home

November 30, 1990

A Baltimore County man who surprised two burglars at his home yesterday was shot in the abdomen, county police said.

Police said the robbers entered a house in the first block of Benoni Circle in the Tidewater Village community by pointing a gun at two men who lived there after one of them answered the door.

The robbers ransacked the house. When the third resident came home at 3:45 p.m., one of the robbers shot him in the abdomen as he came in, police said.

Henry Curtis Simmons, 49, was in serious condition last night at Franklin Square Hospital.
