A teen was shot while attempting to break into a home in College Hill Monday morning.

Police say two males were trying to break into the home on Kenneth Avenue around 8 a.m. when the homeowner fired at them. One of the males, a teenager, was shot during the altercation.

According to police, the suspects then took off running. The injured teen was found by officers on East Way. He was taken to the hospital for treatment. The other suspect was also located and taken into custody.

Officers on the scene told FOX19's Kelly Rippin that it appears the suspects tried to come in through a back window.
