When officers arrived, the homeowner stated that he had shot the intruder who was attempting to break into his home.

Officers found the suspect a short time later, he was found to be suffering from a gunshot wound. The suspect, who's name is not being released, was transported to the Muskogee Regional Medical Center where he's listed in stable condition.
