Lyon County authorities say a homeowner shot and injured one person breaking into his home and held another suspect at gunpoint until officers arrived.

Sheriff Jeff Cope says the apparent burglary attempt occurred early Wednesday at the home of Ronald Sleisher about three miles north of Neosho Rapids.

Cope says Sleisher heard a pounding on his door and a window breaking and fired at the intruders.

KVOE reports one suspect, a 35-year-old man from Council Grove, was taken to a Topeka hospital, where his condition was not available. A 30-year-old man from Dunlap was arrested.

Sleisher and another person in the home were not hurt.

Cope says there is no indication Sleisher or the other person in the house knew the suspects.
