Deputies: Man in his 70s shot, injured 50-year-old home invader

CARNATION -- A man in his 50s is under arrest after being shot twice by a homeowner in his 70s during an alleged home invasion Sunday.

Around 2 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to calls of shots fired at a home in the 9400 block of Carnation-Duvall Road NE, according to the King County Sheriff's Office. Once on scene, the homeowner reported firing a 9mm pistol five times at a man who barged into his home and attacked a 65-year-old roommate.

The 65-year-old was transported to a local hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries to the face.

The homeowner told police he was not sure if he hit the home invader with bullets, as he stated the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle after the melee. Police later found the suspect  a short distance away when he called 911 to report he had been shot.

Emergency crews took the suspect to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds to the shoulder and upper torso.

As police compiled the events, they discovered the suspect allegedly lived at the homeowner's home a short time ago. The homeowner told police it was not the first time the suspect accosted him and attacked others in his house.

Following his release from the hospital, the suspect was booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault. No charges have been filed against the homeowner.

The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating the shooting.
