The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after a homeowner was shot in the leg during an attempted home invasion early Monday morning.
Officers were called to a home in the 7600 block of Blue Creek South Drive at approximately 4:30 a.m. on the report of the break-in.
The homeowner reported to police that two busted through his door, claiming to have a warrant. The man then stated he sprayed the suspects with pepper spray, before they shot him in the leg and fled the scene.
Officers were unable to locate the suspects. One neighbor reported seeing the two men take off in a white car just after the shots were fired.
Police said they do not believe the shooting was random. However, the homeowner did report that he did not recognize the two suspects. Investigators served a search warrant at the home and removed a few small bags.
The homeowner was transported to an area hospital in good condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
