North Little Rock police said a suspected intruder was shot Tuesday morning while breaking into a home.
When officers responded shortly after 11 a.m. to the Somerset Drive address, the 34-year-old resident told them he was watching a movie with a female guest when heard an individual kicking his front door.
The North Little Rock man grabbed his handgun and told the intruder, “Stop kicking the door. I’ve got a gun," but the kicking continued until the door was forced open, according to a report from the Police Department.
The report states the homeowner fired two shots from the kitchen as the intruder, later identified as 37-year-old Renaldo Foreman, entered the living room. The Maumelle man then stumbled away and reportedly fell into a pile of leaves in front of the house.
Foreman was taken to Baptist Health Medical Center-North Little Rock, where he received treatment for a gunshot wound to the torso, police said.
