Detroit — Police say an alleged house squatter on Detroit's east side is recovering after being shot early Tuesday morning in the home.

The shooting was reported about 2:30 a.m. on the 19700 block of Waltham, said Bryan Warrick, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. That's south of East State Fair and east of Hoover.

Warrick says the 25-year-old man was allegedly squatting at a home when an intruder broke through a window and started firing shots.

After being shot, the victim was able to head north to East State Fair and call 911. 

Medics transported him to a hospital, and he's listed in temporary serious condition.
