IA: Man Fires Shotgun to Chase off Intruders
The incident happened in the 2300 block of Gaines Street around 5:12 a.m. Police say the resident, 30-year-old Brandon Wagner, was asleep and was woken up by the sound of his back door being kicked in.
Wagner grabbed a shotgun and confronted several people on his porch. When they saw the gun, police say they ran from the home. Wagner told police he shot off a round in the air as they were running away and another when they got into a vehicle in the alley and sped off.
