BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana homeowner shot and wounded a 19-year-old houseguest in his garage after mistaking him for an intruder.

Billings Police Sgt. Pat Curry tells The Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/1m16HiZ ) the 19-year-old was a family friend of the homeowner and was staying at the house while attending seminary school in Billings. The young man was in the garage making a phone call at about 11 p.m. Saturday when the homeowner mistook him for an intruder.

Curry says it appears the seminary student was shot in the chest. He says the injury did not appear to be life-threatening.

Officials did not identify the victim or the 50-year-old homeowner.

Curry says the homeowner probably won’t face charges.
