From the December 1, 2007 Springfield News-Sun:

SPRINGFIELD — Springfield police continue to investigate a burglary that occurred on Thrasher Street Wednesday night in which a homeowner fired shots at two intruders.

A resident of a home in the 900 block of Thrasher Street said he came home at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and saw intruders moving around inside his home, according to a police report.

The man took a gun out of his truck and ran toward the house when one of the burglars ran out the front door and toward the back yard, according to the report.

Another intruder appeared in the back yard, and that’s when the man said he fired two shots.

One of the burglars fell after the shots were fired, but then got up and ran. Both of the intruders jumped a fence and fled the scene, according to the report.

Springfield Police Division Captain Mike Hill said investigators “have not established” whether the intruder was shot or injured, and no arrests have been made.
