Police say a Philadelphia woman sent a man to a hospital by shooting him after he broke into her home early Sunday morning.

The 32-year-old man made his way into the house on the 3100 block of Arbor Street, in the Kensington neighborhood, just before 3 a.m. and attacked the 26 and 27-year-old women inside, Philadelphia Police Department spokesman Miguel Torres said. That's when one of them shot him once in the upper leg, he said.

Officers responded and the man was taken to a hospital, where police said he was in critical condition, after initially saying he was stable. His name was not immediately released.

Police said the women were not hurt.
