Two men were shot late Tuesday night after apparently breaking into a Hamilton residence.
A resident at a house in the 500 block of Buckeye Street said at about 11:10 p.m. the two suspects forced entry into his house and attempted to rob him, according to the police report.
The two suspects were both shot and sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Richard Burkhardt. One man was transported to an area hospital from the scene, and another showed up later at a hospital.
“He (the resident) said he shot them when they came in and tried to rob him,” Burkhardt said.
No charges have been filed, and detectives are continuing to investigate.
