SOUTH SALT LAKE — A home invader’s night didn’t go as planned on Friday as he was shot in the leg by a resident of the home, police said.

The man was shot after he kicked in the door of a home near 300 E. 3480 South at about 10:25 p.m. Friday, South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller said.

A man who was in the house ran to a back room, grabbed a gun and then shot the invader in the leg, Keller said. The two people involved in the shooting knew each other and had some kind of history, Keller added.

The man who was shot was in the hospital as of Saturday morning, Keller said. He did not provide any identifying information for either of the people involved in the shooting.

He said the shooting appears to be a case of self-defense, but police were still investigating.
