ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police say an 82-year-old man shot and critically wounded a man he believed was breaking into his home.

The shooting happened around 2:40 a.m. Sunday in the city’s West End neighborhood. Police were first called about a “prowler attempting entry.” As officers were on the way to the home, a second call said there was a shooting at the same home.

The 82-year-old man and a 59-year-old man in the same house told police an intruder had forced his way inside. The 82-year-old shot the 37-year-old suspected intruder.
