Two people were injured in a Forestville home invasion Saturday morning.

One person was stabbed and another shot in a home invasion in Forestville early Saturday morning.

Sanilac County Central Dispatch received a report of a man who had been shot shortly before 5 a.m., according to the Sanilac County Sheriff Department.

Dispatchers further gathered that the homeowner had been stabbed by the suspect and the homeowner found a firearm and shot the suspect during the home invasion on Cedar Avenue.

Det. Sgt. Steve McKenney said the victim and suspect are related.

It appears that the suspect was intoxicated at the time of the incident, McKenney said.

The homeowner, a 33-year-old Forestville man, was transported by Sanilac EMS to Harbor Beach Hospital for treatment of his injuries and was later released. The suspect, a 37-year-old Carsonville man, was taken to Deckerville Hospital and later transferred to Ascension St. Mary's Hospital.

The department said the suspect was taken into custody and lodged at the Sanilac County jail pending arraignment after his treatment and release from the hospital.

The incident remains under investigation.
