A Lake Worth burglary that turned into a shooting ended with the juvenile suspect in the hospital Wednesday morning.

The Palm Beach County Sherriff’s Office responded to the Lighthouse Vape & Smoke Shop on South Dixie Highway shortly after 4 a.m.

When they arrived at the shop, authorities found the suspect suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

According to detectives, the juvenile threw a rock through the front window at the shop, which set off the store alarm and alerted the business owner.

During the confrontation between the two, the juvenile was shot.

Deputies said once the suspect recovers, he will be charged.
