MIAMI COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) — A man says he shot a suspect during an attempted home invasion on Thursday night.

It happened in the 7600 block of North Montgomery County Line Road, near Haber Road just after 11 p.m. on Thursday.

A man called 911 and said a group of men kicked in the door of his house in an attempted home invasion.

The caller said someone fired a shot at him during the break-in attempt.

The man told 911 he got his own gun and fired back, hitting one of the men in the leg.

The group of men fled, and he found the shooting victim in a ditch outside his house a few minutes later.

The Miami County Sheriff is investigating the incident and is expected to release more information on Friday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
