A shooting and robbery investigation is underway in Tuskegee. Police say a homeowner opened fire on two men who were allegedly trying to steal items from the man's home.
The homeowner confronted the suspects on his property, off Collins Street less than a mile from the police department, and fired three shots. One of those shots struck one of the men in the leg. Both suspects fled on foot.
The man's house caught on fire several days ago and was later ruled accidental. Thursday morning the male suspects came onto the man's property apparently with the motive to steal something.
Investigators aren't sure if the homeowner had any sort of connection with the two men but the police chief says the homeowner is retired and is a law-abiding citizen.
The two suspects are now in custody, captured within 3 hours with the help of the state's K-9 unit.
Tuskegee Police Chief Lester Patrick declined to release any names until Friday, but says both suspects are now charged with third degree burglary.
