CARNATION, Wash. (AP) - Police say a suspect in a Carnation home intrusion is suffering from injuries after being shot by the homeowner.

KOMO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OrC9RE ) that Detective Jason Houck with the King County Sheriff’s Office says the incident began Sunday when a homeless man, who had been on the property earlier, returned to the residence to get his belongings.

A struggle ensued between the homeless man and the two homeowners, a 50- and 70-year-old man. The intruder allegedly attacked one of the homeowners when the other homeowner grabbed a handgun and fired several times at the attacker.

The alleged intruder fled the scene and called 911 to report he had been shot. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Houck says he is expected to survive and will be arrested.
