ORLANDO, Fla. - A resident shot one of three intruders early Wednesday during an Orlando home invasion, according to deputies.
Orange County Sheriff's deputies said two men and a woman, one of whom had a shotgun, broke into a home at the Villa Tuscany apartments on Sherwood Terrace Drive in Orlando.
Three people were inside the home celebrating a birthday and a scuffle broke out, said deputies, adding that one of the residents grabbed a gun and shot an intruder.
The three assailants fled the scene and drove off but were quickly apprehended by deputies after a neighbor called 911, officials said.
The man who was shot was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The motive for the break-in was not immediately known.
Officials initially told Local 6 there were five people inside the home.
