An Albion resident thwarted a home invasion Wednesday night by shooting the would-be intruder in the leg, police said.
The Albion Police Department said in a statement that officers were dispatched to the 300 block of West Center Street at 11:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on a report of shots fired.
Soon after, they received information that a homeowner had called to report shooting at an intruder who was attempting to break into the home, the statement said.
“Upon further investigation officers located a 20-year-old Albion resident in the 500 block of W. Cass Street who was shot in the leg,” the statement said.
The 20-year-old was transported to Allegiance Health in Jackson for treatment and was later released.
The suspect was arrested on charges of home invasion and has been lodged at the Calhoun County Jail.
The case remains under investigation but a report of the “initial incident” has been forwarded to Calhoun County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
