A woman was shot Saturday morning, after police say she tried to force herself into a stranger's home.

Police say it happened around 4:45 a.m. at a home on Talisman Road, in the Garden Springs neighborhood off Lane Allen Road.

Officials say a woman in her 40s was home alone when a woman in her 20s came banging on her door, eventually breaking through a window.

Police say the homeowner fired a shot at the intruder.

The woman was taken to UK Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, and will likely be charged with breaking and entering.

Police believe the home was randomly targeted.
