A man who broke into an occupied home early Sunday in Chehalis was shot by the home’s owner, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says.

Deputies arrived at the home shortly before 5 a.m. to find one man with a gunshot wound.

Deputies say a 51-year-old man broke into the home where a 24-year-old man and his wife were sleeping. The owner called 911, then armed himself with a pistol while waiting for deputies to arrive.

At one point, the suspect charged down a hallway toward the homeowner, who fired a shot, hitting the suspect. The two men then became involved in struggle until the suspect was able to break free. The homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

A witness said he saw the suspect Sunday morning rummaging through boxes on his patio. The witness chased him away.

Bradd Reynolds, a retired cop, runs the neighborhood watch group.

“I think it proves the point that we need guns,” he said. “I am always armed.”
