Homeowner opens fire on intruder

A 19-year-old man was shot several times by a homeowner Saturday night after he reportedly broke into the home, police said.

The victim, Stephen Richardson, was taken to an area hospital, where his condition was not immediately available.

Authorities said officers were dispatched at 9:40 p.m. to the home in the 3100 block of West Norman Circle.

Officers said Richardson reportedly was drunk when he entered the house, where the homeowner shot him.

Maj. Mark Irwin said Richardson “thought he was breaking into his (own) house.”

He said he wasn’t sure whether Richardson lived in the vicinity. Officers attempted to interview Richardson, but he was too drunk to be coherent, Irwin said.

Police are investigating the shooting.
