A Lake Placid man was shot twice and now faces armed burglary and aggravated assault charges after he was confronted by an armed store owner late Wednesday during an alleged break-in at a Highway Park business.

The suspect, 23-year-old David Allan Curry, was shot in the left foot and right thigh about 11:15 p.m. when he allegedly pointed a gun at Jonathan T. Hawthorne, the owner of HHH Food and Beverage at 128 Crestmore Drive. Hawthorne, acting on a call from an alarm company, arrived at the store just before a deputy and was armed with a .40 caliber Glock handgun.
