Homeowner shoots alleged armed intruder

An alleged intruder is listed in critical condition at Carolinas Medical Center after police say a homeowner shot him.

Police from the North Tryon Division responded to a call around 8:45 Tuesday night at a home in the 5800 block of Eastbrook Road in east Charlotte.

The homeowner told investigators an armed man, who he did not know, walked into his home.

He also said he and other residents of the house fought with the man and during the struggle the alleged intruder was shot.

Police have not released his identity, pending notification of his family.

The case now goes to the district attorney’s office which will determine whether the homeowner was justified in shooting the man.
