Homeowner Shoots At Thief

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Mar 21, 2012

A Lansing homeowner shot at a suspected thief after finding the man in his home Tuesday evening.

Police say the man returned to his home on the 700 block of Cleveland around 5:25 p.m. and saw a man run from the back of his house.

The homeowner went inside and found another man inside.

He recognized the second suspect, and fired a shotgun at him.

The second suspect was not injured and left the home.

When police arrived, he directed officers to the home where the suspect lives; he was taken into custody.

That man is expected to be arraigned today.

The police are still looking for the first suspect.
