MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say two residents of a home southeast of Atlanta were shot after walking in on two armed burglary suspects inside their Henry County home.

Police tell CBS Atlanta that they believe one homeowner was able to return fire and one of the suspects might have been shot.

Officers arrived at the home around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday after a call to 911 reported shots fired at the house, near Old Conyers Road and Flat Rock Road in the Lexington Park subdivision.

Henry County police Maj. Jason Bolton said the two residents of the home were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta and admitted for surgery. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Police are trying to determine what, if anything, was stolen from the home.
