Mobile Police said a teenager is responsible for an armed home invasion.

Investigators said 19-year-old Ernest Lee Jackson, Jr. and another male broke into a home on Brewton Avenue around 2:40 p.m. Monday.

The two victims told officers Jackson and the other robber pointed guns at them and started digging through their pockets. One victim said he was able to distract the suspects and pulled a gun from his own pocket. The victim then fired a shot, hitting Jackson.

Police said Jackson was taken to the hospital after he was shot and arrested after he was released.
