A police officer in the United States has shot and wounded a naked burglar.

San Diego P olice Captain Mike Hastings said the man attacked the officer yesterday and they scuffled over the officer's gun before the shooting.

Police were called to a home burglary, and the first officer to arrive saw a naked man trying to break in through a window.

Mr Hastings says the officer drew his gun and told the man to surrender, but the man attacked the officer, who dropped his weapon.

The two struggled over the gun, and the officer twice tried to use a stun gun on the man until grabbing his gun and shooting him in the torso.

The man is in fair condition. The officer has only minor scratches.
