Wash. homeowner shoots, wounds drugged-out intruder

An Washington state homeowner shot a drugged-out intruder who entered his home while he was asleep with his wife early Sunday.

KPTV.com reports that the suspect, Brian L. Creed, entered the home and started walking down a hallway toward the homeowner, who was standing outside his bedroom door.

When the 24-year-old homeowner told the suspect to stop, Creed allegedly charged the homeowner, prompting him to fire a shot at the intruder, the station reported.

Creed then allegedly tackled the homeowner and the two were involved in a physical altercation until the homeowner was able to hold the suspect at gunpoint until authorities arrived.

Investigators told KPTV.com that Creed had recently moved into a nearby house and admitted to having used methamphetamine earlier in the day.

Creed was reportedly treated at a nearby hospital. The homeowner was not injured.
