An Edmonson County teenager confronted by two men who unlawfully entered his residence shot and critically wounded one of them early Sunday, according to police.

The Kentucky State Police Post 3 received a request for assistance from the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office around 4:16 a.m. Sunday regarding a man who had been shot after entering a home.

According to the KSP, a preliminary investigation indicated that two adults went to the residence on Rocky Hill Road to confront a 17-year-old male.

The two men got into a confrontation with the teenager, who then retrieved a shotgun and fired it at one of the men, striking him in the abdomen, according to KSP.

The adults left the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement, but were later located at The Medical Center in Bowling Green.

The wounded man was admitted and listed in critical but stable condition. The other man, Aaron Miller, 28, of Brownsville, was arrested on a charge of first-degree burglary and lodged in Hart County Jail.

The investigation is ongoing.
