A Branch County home-invasion incident was interrupted when the owner of the residence shot and struck one of the three would-be intruders.
State police said the incident occurred around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 1200 block of Berlew Road in Algansee Township, where the suspects broke out windows and attempted to break-in through the front door.
After the homeowner fired multiple rounds from an undisclosed weapon inside the residence, the suspects left the scene in a dark green vehicle with a loud exhaust. It could be or resembles a Mercury Marquis or Ford Crown Victoria, investigators said.
One of the suspects was dropped off at Coldwater Regional Hospital and was treated for a wound considered non-life-threatening. The vehicle and its occupants drove away from the hospital.
