Police say a homeowner shot someone breaking into his house. It happened around 4:30 Monday morning in the 7400 block of King, that's east of the Interstate.

Police say the two residents heard their dog barking in the back yard. When the homeowner got up to see what it was, he saw a man trying to get in. The suspect forced his way inside; investigators say this is when the homeowner shot him and held him until police arrived.

The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he's stable.

"trying to break in"? It sounds like the intruder succeeded in breaking in, then got shot for the successful unlawful forced entry.
