A homeowner involved in a standoff with police at West 13th Street and Baxter Street in Pueblo surrendered, police said.

Police said the situation started around 7:15 a.m. Wednesday when a 26-year-old Brent Mede tried to enter a home without permission.  The homeowner, 44-year-old Jack Medina, shot the intruder in the leg, police said.  Police told KRDO NewsChannel 13 that Medina knows Mede.
