KY: Woman Defends Apartment, 2 Shots; 2 Hits
"The victim had made entry into the apartment against the wishes of the occupants. One of those occupants was able to fire a couple of rounds from a handgun, which did strike our victim at which time he was disabled and we responded to the call," Lieutenant Chris Young, with the Lexington Division of Police, said.
Police tell WKYT that two women in the apartment were awake at the time and one of them fired at the man, hitting him twice. The burglar was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The man was shot once in the leg.
According to officers, the shooting happened while two children were asleep in the apartment.
