Police say evidence at the home is consistent with a forced entry and that residents in the home woke up early Friday after hearing breaking glass and someone moving around in an enclosed porch area of the home. A 71-year-old man in the residence, Leroy Hudson, reportedly fired one shot at the suspected intruder. The injured suspect, a 26-year-old male, was transported to a local hospital with injuries described as "life threatening." Police said he was shot in the head. One local resident said he sees "weird people" walking around the area at all hours of the night and is not surprised at the incident. Oregon law does permit the use of deadly force if a homeowner feels a threat is imminent. Northeast Glisan Street between 105th and 109th Avenue was closed for several hours while police investigated the incident. Find this article at: http://www.katu.com/news/8245062.html .
