The victim was able to identify Anderson when police arrived.

Eight to 10 police units, a K-9 unit and a medical unit responded to the scene at about 8 p.m.

Police told ABC 17 News that the homeowners were able to detain one of the intruders, Anderson, who allegedly broke into the home with a gun.
