ATLANTA -- Police say a homeowner fired at three men banging and kicking at his door.

Officer John Chafee with Atlanta Police says it happened around 11 a.m. Friday on Drew Drive, between Perry Boulevard and Johnson Road.

Chafee says the owner saw a van pull up and three men he didn't know came up and started banging and kicking at his door.

Chafee says the man feared for his life and got a gun.

He opened the door and started firing, hitting two of the suspects.

The three people ran back to the van and drove off.

Officers found the van and pulled it over. The one man who was not shot ran off.

Police arrested the other two and took them to Grady Memorial Hospital, where they are both in stable condition.
