Kenosha Police are investigating a shooting that happened in a home in the 8200 block of 46th Avenue Friday afternoon.
Police said a 22-year-old man who lived in the house found a man in the entryway between the house and attached two-car garage just before noon Friday.
The resident, who had a handgun, confronted the man. The two struggled, and the gun went off, striking the resident in the shoulder.
The intruder fled the house and was gone when police arrived. The gun was left behind, and the man did not take anything from the house.
Lt. James Beller said the resident’s injuries were not life-threatening.
Beller said it is not clear whether the intruder fled the house on foot or in a vehicle.
The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac just south of Lance Middle School. Police at the scene had the house taped off with yellow police tape and were checking the area for exterior security cameras that might have captured video that would help in the investigation.
A woman who lived near the home said she did not hear a gunshot. She said she came outside to find what happened when she saw an ambulance and police cars outside.
Beller said the resident told police he did not know the person he confronted. He may have interrupted an attempt to burglarize the house.
Tanya Ruder, spokeswoman for the Kenosha Unified School District, said police notified the school of the shooting just before 12:30 p.m. and gave the school and all-clear at about 1 p.m. She said staff were monitoring windows and doors until police gave the all-clear and had additional monitoring at release time Friday afternoon.
