Three Sumner County residents are in custody after being suspected of attempting to burglarize a Franklin, Ky. home. One of the suspects was shot by the homeowner.

The owner of a residence on Nashville Road was inspecting his property at 1:56 p.m. Wednesday when he found three people in a detached garage stealing items, according to the Simpson County Sheriff's Department.

The suspects have been identified as William Gabriel Creasy, 30, of Westmoreland; William's brother Caleb Creasy, 27, of Portland; and Samantha Brooks, 20, of Portland.

Police believe William Creasy was armed with a handgun. The homeowner, who was also armed, fired at him, hitting him in the abdomen. William Creasy was taken to Bowling Green Medical Center and then transported to Vanderbilt's hospital. He will face charges once released from the hospital. His condition was not yet known.

Caleb Creasy and Brooks were arrested and charged with third-degree burglary.

Police have confiscated their vehicle and believe once fully search, it will lead to more charges, according to the sheriff's department.

Police said they currently believe the homeowner was justified in his actions. His statements are consistent with evidence they found on the scene.
