A North Carolina man is in critical condition after being shot by a property owner during an attempted home invasion, police say. 

The Mount Airy Police Department said Joshua Murphy, 41, was at home Tuesday afternoon when Daniel Brown entered through his front door armed with a handgun, the Mount Airy News reported. 

"Once Brown came through the front door, he was confronted by Joshua Murphy, who fired one shot, striking Brown in the neck," police said in a statement obtained by the newspaper.
