Police say an 84-year-old western Pennsylvania man wounded a home invasion suspect with the gun he carried in the Korean War.

Elizabeth Township police say 25-year-old Raymond Hiles was captured not long after trying to break into Fred Ricciutti's home early Tuesday morning.

Ricciutti says he heard Hiles break a window and then confronted him, firing a single shot that grazed Hiles' neck.

Investigators say Hiles was arrested a few blocks away, carrying a screwdriver and a stun gun. He's being held on $100,000 bail on charges including criminal trespass and burglary.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Hiles.

Authorities say they don't expect to bring any charges against Ricciutti.
