Capt. Bart Aguirre of the Tupelo Police Department said police were dispatched to an apartment at 1513 Ida Street at about 2:15 a.m. Monday. The person who rented an apartment there told police a man was breaking into his house and he shot the intruder, Aguirre said.
The intruder, whose name has not been released, was treated at the scene and was taken to the North Mississippi Medical Center, where he is now listed in critical but stable condition.
The shooting is still under investigation.
