A man who broke into an occupied home early Sunday in Chehalis was shot by the home’s owner, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says.
Deputies arrived at the home shortly before 5 a.m. to find one man with a gunshot wound.
Deputies say a 51-year-old man broke into the home where a 24-year-old man and his wife were sleeping. The owner called 911, then armed himself with a pistol while waiting for deputies to arrive.
At one point, the suspect charged down a hallway toward the homeowner, who fired a shot, hitting the suspect. The two men then became involved in struggle until the suspect was able to break free. The homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived.
