      Falls burglary victim shoots suspect, 19
      He holds second at gunpoint until police arrive
      By Ed Meyer
      Beacon Journal staff writer

      One man was shot and his alleged accomplice was held at gunpoint by a
      burglary victim at the Studio City apartments in Cuyahoga Falls early
      Tuesday, police said.

      The victim, Louis E. Caporaletti, 43, was awakened during the burglary
      attempt at 12:45 a.m. and confronted the two suspects, police said.

      During a scuffle, police said Caporaletti produced a 9 mm handgun, fired
      three times and wounded one of the suspects, 19-year-old Christopher D.
      Walker.

      Police said Caporaletti held the second suspect, 20-year-old Christopher
      H. Thrasher, at gunpoint until officers arrived at the 2299 Winter
      Parkway apartment.

      Walker was taken to Akron City Hospital, where he underwent surgery for
      his wound, police said.

      Police Lt. Tom Pozza said both suspects were charged with aggravated
      burglary and robbery.

      Thrasher, who gave police an address in Tuskegee, Ala., was being held
      at the Summit County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.

      The condition of Walker, also listed by police as a Studio City
      apartment resident, was not available.

      Police had no other details, and Caporaletti did not return calls
      seeking comment.
