A man found with two gunshot wounds to the legs is identified as the missing suspect in a home invasion.

A phone call to Jefferson County 911 led to the missing suspect from Monday night's home invasion.

“We got a call from 911 stating that the individual was here at the residence. We gained entry and located him," said Yorkville Police Chief John Morelli.

Kenneth Hall was found to be suffering from two gunshot wounds inside the Tiltonsville home.

"He had two gunshot wounds to both of his knees," Morelli said.

Hall was transported to East Ohio Regional Hospital for treatment. He was the missing suspect in a home invasion on Pipe Creek Road in Belmont County earlier this week.

The homeowner told responding deputies two armed men wearing masks forced their way into the home. The homeowner said he was assaulted by the men but was able to get his gun and shoot at them.

Hall was believed to be shot twice in the legs during the robbery and was a fugitive until Friday.

The second suspect is also recovering in a different hospital. Investigators with the sheriff's office say charges will be forthcoming.
