” A man fought back against a home invasion by three men, one of whom was shot during the violent confrontation early Friday morning.

  State police believe the wounded intruder ran through some nearby woods to flee the crime scene in North Beaver Township, Lawrence County. He later turned up at a hospital and was flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh for surgery.

  The incident happened around 2 a.m. at a home on Hillsville Road in a very quiet part of town, close to the border of Bessemer Borough.

  Police believe the men broke into the house, and a resident inside was pistol-whipped. The victim was then able to grab a rifle and fire back at the suspects, hitting one of them in the chest.”
