ECKERTY, Ind. (AP) — State police say a man who broke into a rural southern Indiana home where a bachelorette party was occurring was shot by the prospective father-in-law.

The confrontation happened early Saturday as the women held a party near the Crawford County community of Eckerty, about 50 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky.

The (Jasper) Herald reports the women heard someone beating on the doors. Police say they hid and called for help while the intruder entered.

Police say the prospective father-in-law wounded the intruder in the back as he drove away.

The 39-year-old man was taken to a hospital, but information on his condition wasn’t released. Police say they didn’t find a connection between the wounded man and those at the party.
