Shot fired at intruder

Police are investigating an incident early Saturday morning in which a homeowner fired a shot at a man who had broken into his home.

Police said the homeowner told them he was awakened at 3:50 a.m. by the sound of breaking glass. He said he got up and went to the kitchen carrying a handgun. There he saw a man dressed in black carrying a baseball bat. When the intruder advanced toward the homeowner, police said he fired one shot at him. At that the intruder turned and ran from the home.

Police said they have evidence that supports the homeowner’s story that someone broke into the home and that a handgun was fired.

Lebanon Police Captain Dan Wright said police believe the intruder had specific reasons for picking that home to break into and that this was not a random incident.

Wright said the focus of the investigation is on the burglary.
