CHEHALIS, Wash. —

A Lewis County homeowner shot and wounded an intruder, then held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

The sheriff's office says the 24-year-old homeowner called 911 a little before 5 a.m. Sunday, when he heard someone talking outside his residence in Chehalis. He armed himself with a pistol and was waiting for police to show up when a man entered the home and started walking toward him down a hallway.

The homeowner told deputies he ordered the man to stop, but the man charged him instead. He fired one shot and wrestled with the man until he was able to get free and hold the man at gunpoint.

The sheriff's office identified the intruder as 51-year-old Brian L. Creed. He was taken to Providence Centralia Hospital and then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in stable condition. He was to be held for investigation for burglary and assault.
