A man suffering from at least two gunshot wounds was taken to an area hospital Thursday following a shooting in Long View.
Long View Police Lieutenant Mark Ford said officers responded to a report of a home invasion on 38th Street NW around 8 a.m.
Officers say it appears a suspect kicked in the door of an elderly victim and tried to force the victim to open a safe in the home.
Ford says the victim fired at the suspect.
A tip led officers and emergency personnel to a man suffering from gunshot wounds at Lowman's Motel in Hildebran.
