Suffolk County police homicide detectives are investigating after an off-duty NYPD detective shot a man who, police said, attempted to break into the officer's home in West Babylon early Saturday.

According to a news release from Suffolk police, a man broke into a Fifth Avenue residence around 3:30 a.m. He was shot by the detective, whose name wasn’t released.

The unidentified burglary suspect was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. It’s unclear how many times he was shot by the officer.

Police said they are investigating the suspected intruder, who potentially faces second-degree attempted burglary charges.
