A man was shot multiple times early Saturday morning after he allegedly broke into a Salt Lake City apartment.

He was in critical condition Saturday night at LDS Hospital with wounds to the abdomen, chest and arm, said Salt Lake City police Lt. Dave Cracroft.

About 1:15 a.m., a 35-year-old man kicked his way into an apartment at 1168 S. 500 East and assaulted a man living there, said police Lt. Gary Layton. The resident's grown son retrieved a small-caliber pistol and shot the intruder, Cracroft said. The shooting victim ran to a nearby residence, where he fell in the yard.

Layton said the shooting appears to have been in self-defense and the gunman has not been arrested. He didn't know what spurred the alleged home invasion.
