A Wichita man shot a would-be robber in an early morning home invasion, police say.
Wichita police Sgt. Jim Pinegar said a 64-year-old man walked into a house in the 3000 block of E. First Street, near Hillside, shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday. The resident of the home fired two shots at the other man using a .45-caliber gun, Pinegar said. One shot hit his arm.
The man fled to a nearby Kwik Shop, according to a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor. Within minutes, someone at the store called 911 to report a gunshot victim on scene.
The resident of the house — a 60-year-old man — also called police, the dispatcher said. Pinegar said he did not know the invader.

The alleged burglar was taken to Wesley Medical Center for treatment. He sustained serious injuries, the dispatcher said.
