LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man was shot in the chest early Friday morning after trying to break into the home of a former girlfriend, according to police.

Lieutenant Eric Lloyd with Las Vegas Metro police said the shooting happened near the area of South Durango Drive and Tropicana Avenue at about 1 a.m.

Citing the woman living at an apartment complex, Lloyd said she called officers regarding a former boyfriend kicking her door.

Police said the woman fired two shots at the man once he made entry into the unit, hitting him once in the chest.

The man fled from the scene and tried to hide in the area. A K-9 unit was able to locate him behind bushes, Lloyd said.

Police on Friday afternoon confirmed the suspect is 22-year-old Douglas Eugene Jackson.

The victim, who has been in contact with FOX5 and doesn't wish to be identified, said her past relationship with Jackson wouldn't qualify as romantic.

The victim sent FOX5 a series of screenshots she said detailed numerous texts and online messages from Jackson. She wrote in a blog that a stalker forced her to move, obtain a restraining order and acquire a license to carry a concealed weapon.

The victim told FOX5 she had been sleeping with a chair in front of her door to keep her stalker out.
