About 12:08 a.m., a 42-year-old man forced his way into a home in the 800 block of West Lakeside Place through a rear sliding door, Chicago police said.

He was confronted by the 39-year-old homeowner who shot him in the buttocks, police said. The homeowner is an FOID card holder.

The older man’s condition was stabilized at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said. No one else was inside the home, and the homeowner was not injured.
