A Fort Wayne homeowner fired multiple shots at an armed burglar Friday morning, police said.
Officers responded at about 10:22 a.m. to a report of a burglary in progress, with possible shots fired, at a home in the 1600 block of Emerson Avenue, just north of Spring Street, said Fort Wayne Police spokesman Sgt. Mark Brooks.
When police arrived, they learned that a male resident had discovered a man breaking into the home and opened fire at the would-be burglar, Brooks said.
"The resident observed a male white in his house that was armed with a handgun and shot at him several times," Brooks said. "At this point, we do not believe the suspect was hit."
