Wichita, Kansas: Home Invader Shot

Wichita, Kansas

From the December 14, 2007 Wichita Eagle:

Wichita police are investigating a break-in at an apartment that led to one of the suspects being shot.

Two men forced their way into an apartment in the 2700 block of East Ninth Street at about 6 p.m. Thursday, police reported, and began beating up a 26-year-old man who lived there. The victim broke away at some point and fired a shot at the two suspects.

One of them, a 24-year-old man, was hit by the bullet and later went to Wesley Medical Center, police said. He was admitted and remains hospitalized today. Police are still looking for the second intruder, a 31-year-old man known by the apartment resident.

The incident remains under investigation, police spokesman Gordon Bassham said, but the shooting “may have been self-defense.”
