The man authorities say broke into a Botetourt County home is in the hospital after being shot by the homeowners' adult daughter's boyfriend Thursday afternoon, according to the Botetourt County Sheriff's Office.
At about 4:30 p.m. the Sheriff's Office received a call about a person who forced his way into a home in the 3300 block of Ball Park Road, near Eagle Rock.
A man reportedly entered the home, pointed a gun at the female homeowner and demanded that she give him the keys to her truck.
When she refused and yelled for another person in the home, the intruder began firing his weapon inside the home.
Another resident retrieved a weapon, came down the stairs and he fired one shot at the intruder, who was coming up the stairs, hitting him in the neck.
