SCHOOLCRAFT TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A homeowner shot an intruder he found inside his house late Saturday.

Around 11:00 p.m. Saturday, a homeowner in the 800 block of West VW Avenue was shaken to attention when he heard “loud knocking and the front door handle being rattled”.  He then saw what appeared to be two men near his door.

After seeing one of the men walk around his house, the homeowner heard the sound of glass breaking.  It was then he saw one of the men standing inside his home.

The homeowner shot the subject at this point- sending the other would-be burglar running away from the residence.

The fleeing suspect was caught and arrested.  The suspect with the gunshot wound was taken to a local hospital to be treated.
