Police say that just before 5 AM, an intruder entered a married couple's home, which is in a retirement community on the 7200 block of Lillian Court, awakening the wife. She reportedly went to investigate the noise, and found a male intruder in the hallway, prompting her to wake up her husband and inform him of the situation. The husband grabbed his 9mm handgun and shot the intruder in the hip area, after the intruder advanced on him, according to news reports. The intruder fled the home, and a suspect that was armed with a knife and suffering from a gunshot wound was found hiding in the bushes next door, according to police. A suspected accomplice was also apprehended in a nearby vehicle, police say. The homeowners were unharmed.
