Authorities: Suspect shot by resident’s son in home invasion

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northern Ohio say a 35-year-old home invasion suspect has been hospitalized after he was shot multiple times by the son of the home’s resident.

The Richland County Sheriff’s Office says three suspects broke into a Mansfield home early Sunday and threatened the person who lived there with a gun. Investigators say the son of the home’s resident then emerged from the basement with a gun and shot one of the suspects multiple times.

Authorities say the other two suspects in the home invasion took off before police were called around 1:30 a.m.

The 35-year-old suspect was taken to a hospital. His condition wasn’t released.

No charges have been filed.

Authorities say they found a large amount of drugs at the house.
