An Atlanta homeowner shot an intruder after he tried to attack another resident, who uses a wheelchair, with kitchen knives, according to police.
The alleged intruder, identified as Tyrell Johnson, 36, entered the residence through a window before acquiring two kitchen knives late Wednesday night, police told Fox 5, before attempting to attack a disabled resident in another room.
Another resident intervened with a firearm, shooting the suspect in the stomach and the arm, according to police.
The suspect, who was found by officers, was then rushed by paramedics to Grady Memorial Hospital where he underwent surgery and is in stable condition as of Thursday morning, according to the news report.
The homeowner told police he did not know the intruder or understand why his residence was targeted.
None of the residents were injured during the incident.
