ZIONSVILLE, Ind. -- A Zionsville man was shot Monday night by a man claiming to be a stranded driver.
Police said the man knocked on a door in the 4300 block of Creekside Pass in the Austin Oaks subdivision shortly after 9 p.m. and asked to use a pair of pliers.
The homeowner said he went to get the pliers and when he returned, the suspect tried to get into the house. The two got into a fight and the suspect shot the homeowner in the leg.
The homeowner has been identified as George Thomas Eyrich, 58, of Zionsville.
The shooter was described as a black man. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall, about 160 pounds and was wearing a black jacket.
Police said Eyrich was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his right leg and a cut on his forehead.
Neighbor Viska Sasic said the shooting has her unsettled.
"It's scary," she said. "It's really scary. You cannot trust people, basically. You never know who might be behind the door."
