TAYLOR — Two men reportedly were arrested Thursday in connection with a shooting during a home invasion Monday.

Police were expected to present a warrant to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office Friday.

Police Chief Mary Sclabassi said Henry was shot and was in critical condition at an area hospital after undergoing surgery.

According to a police report, Henry and his wife returned to their home in the 7500 block of Wilkie about 9:30 p.m. and found an intruder. There was a confrontation and Henry was shot before the burglar fled. Henry’s wife was not injured, and she called 911.
