SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A man was shot during a home invasion early Thursday morning.

Police said they were called to a home on Stillrock Drive in south Fulton County around 2 a.m.

The homeowner said he thinks the burglar thought no one was home, and scaled the fence in the backyard before coming up to the back door. He said his roommate went to the back door first.

"So (my roommate) immediately banged on the door and said, 'Get out of here.' As soon as he did that, the shot went off. One shot went off ...and then another shot went off immediately after that," the homeowner said.

The roommate showed Channel 2's Rachel Stockman where the bullet grazed his stomach.

The shooter was able to flee the scene and police said they do not know if he is still armed.
