ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Authorities say a Georgia Tech student shot an intruder who broke into a house near the campus.

Police say the shooting happened around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at a house near the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Atlanta  police Capt. Adam Lee says three male Georgia Tech students were asleep inside their home on Curran Street off 10th Street when an intruder broke through a front window of the house.

Lee said one of the residents, a first-year graduate student, was awakened by the shattering glass and grabbed a handgun.

Police say the student shot 22-year-old Adam Keller once in the chest. Keller was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital and was in stable condition. Police say Keller had earlier entered a nearby home uninvited.
