An knife-wielding intruder was shot three to four times and a private security guard was stabbed in the face during an altercation at a Malibu home Friday morning, according to Sgt. James Braden of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. TMZ reports that the violent confrontation took place at model Miranda Kerr's home. According to TMZ, Kerr was not home at the time of the incident.

ABC 7 reports that Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene at approximately 11:13 a.m., and that the intruder was confronted by the security guard after he entered the property. According to KTLA, the intruder is believed to have jumped over an electrified fence to access the home. The residence is located just north of Pacific Coast Highway near the intersection of Encinal Canyon Road and Puesta Del Sol Street in Malibu, between El Pescador and El Matador state beaches.

The security guard was airlifted to a trauma center and the intruder was rushed to a local hospital, according to the L.A. Times. Braden told LAist that neither of the individual's injuries are believed to be life threatening.
