Police: Homeowner shoots 2 suspects during home invasion

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A Colorado Springs man shoots two suspects after they broke into his home Monday night, police say.

Police said three male suspects broke into the home just before 10:00 p.m. on the 2400 block of E. St. Vrain St.

Al Michaud was home during the break-in. A struggle took place between Michaud and the suspects. Michaud got his gun and shot two of the suspects, police said.

"There was one by the door. I put a bullet in his chest.  I was going to shoot the other one in the chest but the one who was closest to me hit my arm and the gun went off and hit him in his leg," said Michaud.

The two suspects who were shot ran from the home, police said. They stopped about one block away because of their injuries.

The two suspects were taken to the hospital, police said, and one suspect is in critical condition. The other injured suspect is in stable condition.
