A burglar got more than he bargained for after he was shot at by the owner of the house he was trying to break into in Huntington.
City police said a man called 911 about 12:30 a.m. Monday and said that a man was trying to break into his house in the 300 block of Oney Avenue.
Police said the owner of the home got a gun from his safe and then shot several rounds at the suspect as he entered through a rear window.
The burglar jumped back through the window and ran away. Police do not believe he was hit by the gunfire.
Officers tracked the burglar with a K-9, but they said the trail stopped several blocks north of the home. He is described as a white male in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a thin build. He had short hair and was wearing a dark T-shirt and jeans.
Anyone with with information should call police.
