The two suspects were both shot and sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Richard Burkhardt. One man was transported to an area hospital from the scene, and another showed up later at a hospital.

“He (the resident) said he shot them when they came in and tried to rob him,” Burkhardt said.

No charges have been filed, and detectives are continuing to investigate.
