Authorities say a suspect in an early morning burglary is in serious condition following actions by the homeowners.

The suspect, 21-year-old Thomas White III, was carrying a firearm when police say he entered the home to rob the couple.

The homeowners fought back against the intruder, apparently retaliating with a knife. White was taken to Troy Regional Medical Center where he's being treated in the intensive care unit.

Authorities say both the male and female homeowners were later released from the hospital, though the woman is reportedly going to Birmingham for treatment to her hand.

Once White, an Enterprise resident, is released from the hospital, he'll be served with a warrant for burglary, robbery and attempted murder.

Police say White is not their only suspect. They're actively searching for two additional suspects in connection with this case. The investigation is ongoing and additional details are not currently available.
