Man Shot by Police in Southern Illinois Is Charged

JONESBORO, Ill. (AP) - A man is facing charges after he was shot by police who were investigating a reported home burglary.

WSIL-TV reports that Union County prosecutors charged 40-year-old Matthew Lewis with attempted home invasion, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and reckless conduct in connection with the May 30 confrontation in Jonesboro.  Authorities say police responding to a reported home break-in found Lewis, who was threatening them with a gun before officers shot and wounded him. Lewis later was treated at a hospital and is now jailed in Jackson County.

Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney. Lewis does not have a listed home telephone number.
