Redford Twp homeowner shoots intruder in hand

Redford Township Police said a home intruder was shot by a homeowner after the suspect entered the home looking for property.

Police were called to the 11600 block of Kinlock just before 8 p.m. Thursday when a suspect entered the home occupied by a woman inside. The woman, who doesn't live at the home, was inside with an infant when the suspect came in.

The suspect told the woman that he wanted property from the home.

During the encounter, the homeowner came home and got into a fight with the suspect who then ran from the scene. As the intruder ran, police said the homeowner shot a gun and hit the man in the hand.

The suspect was taken into custody and taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the homeowner and suspect didn't know each other before the incident.

The man, woman, and infant were not injured.

Police are still investigating and information will be sent to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office for review.
