Knoxville Police say a West Knoxville man shot a man who broke into his home on Friday.
The shooting was reported just before 10:00 am on Lance Drive in West Knoxville.
Investigators say the 59-year-old homeowner was sitting on his back porch when he saw someone peering in the window of his front door. The man went back into the house and got a handgun and confronted two men, who rushed in and attacked him. The homeowner managed to shoot one of the intruders in the upper chest, then the two men fled.
A few minutes later, a man with a gunshot wound was dropped off at Fort Sanders hospital. Joshua Williams, 18, was later transferred to UT Medical Center for further treatment. His current condition is not known.
