WICHITA, Kansas — Wichita police say a man has been hospitalized after being shot in the face during a home invasion.

Police Lt. James Espinoza says a 34-year-old man awoke Tuesday night to find a stranger in his bedroom. He says the intruder shot the man once in the face and then fled from the house. Nothing was reported stolen.

Espinoza says the injured man grabbed his 9-year-old son from another room and drove to an area hospital. He remains in serious condition.

Espinoza says authorities don't have identifying details for the suspect.
