A homeowner on Detroit's east side shot in intruder early Thursday, police said.

The shooting took place about 2 a.m. on the 12000 block of Minden, which is south of East McNichols and east of Gunston.

Officer Dan Donakowski said the suspect forced entry through a window, but then heard the victim moving around and tried to hide behind a couch.

But the victim, a 42-year-old man, was armed and fired shots at the suspect, hitting him on his left side.

Medics transported the suspect, a 36-year-old man, to an area hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.
