A homeowner in the Ormewood Park neighborhood of Atlanta shot and critically injured a man who had broken into his home Monday night. 

According to Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones, officers responded to the scene around 11:30 p.m. The homeowner reported to officers that he grabbed his shotgun after hearing the sound of someone breaking into his home through a rear window. “In fear for his life, [the homeowner] fired one round at him,” Jones said. “The suspect then ran back to the room he entered in.” 

Investigators say that the homeowner then fired a second round at the suspect, who has been identified by police as Spencer Bohannon. Bohannon was struck at least once and transported to an area hospital where he was listed in critical condition. Police say that no charges will be filed against the homeowner, but Bohannon is being charged with burglary.
