1 shot during home invasion attempt in Springfield

A suspect shot during a reported home invasion on Quincy Road is in surgery at Miami Valley Hospital, Springfield police said.

Jonathon L. Miller said he was at home in his bedroom about 1 a.m. Thursday when he heard a loud noise, according to a Springfield Police Division report. The suspect, who hasn’t been identified, then entered his room holding a handgun and told Miller to get out, the report says.

Miller was pushed into the hallway and then the kitchen, police said, where he was struck in the head with a handgun. The gun went off after he was struck, the report says.
