COLUMBUS -- A resident was fighting back after burglars broke into his apartment at 5876 Chatford Drive in East Columbus about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Columbus police say the person who lives in the upstairs apartment shot the suspects who were breaking in through the front door.
One, of the two to three suspects, was shot several times and was driven to Mt. Carmel East Hospital but then transferred to Mt. Carmel West Hospital in critical condition.
Police say they are now looking at surveillance video to see if they can identify the suspects out of this case.
Police detectives were able to gather evidence from the apartment as well as the parking lot.
The resident who shot the burglars is reportedly being very cooperative with police.
